Families

We love working with our families. We take the time to find out what works for your child so that we can make our therapy fun and enjoyable.

We know that you want the best for your child. Speech, language and communication difficulties can affect a child’s academic progression, friendships, behaviour and confidence.

We have a proven track record of improving outcomes for children with speech, language and communication needs. Because your child is unique, we tailor our services to match their individual needs. We will listen to you and advise you on the best plan of action depending on your priorities and budget. We are small enough to provide a friendly and personal service, but large enough to have all the expertise you need. We will give you professional and reliable advice on the best ways to help your child reach their potential.

You can be assured of the quality and dedication of our team. All our therapists are fully qualified, highly-trained professionals, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and insured with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

Personalised Programmes

We know how worrying it can be for you when your child is having problems. We will support you and keep you informed at every stage of your child’s therapy. We will discuss your child’s therapy plan with you and work out the best solutions for you.

Sometimes your therapist may recommend your child follows a therapy ‘programme’ to practise at home and/or at school. They will design a set of targeted activities and exercises for you and/or teaching staff to follow. Your therapist will go through this with you and/or the teaching staff involved step-by-step and provide any help you need. We will arrange regular updates with you to check on how things are going. Some children respond better to this indirect approach than they do one-to-one sessions. Your therapist will advise you if this is going to be the best way forward for your child.

These programmes are created with your child’s interests in mind. We will create fun and motivating games and activities for them and show you how to use toys, games and the everyday activities you do at home to make therapy practice simple and natural.

Sometimes you may need advice and help with specialist reports and recommendations for additional support and onward referrals. We can help with that too.

We also offer parent support sessions where you can come and discuss any issues with us, in person or through telepractice or over the phone. These can be arranged in school, at home or at our office.

Intensive Workshops

Here at The Talking House, it’s our aim to provide children and young adults with the best and most effective therapy, and there are many ways we can do this.

Children benefit from different therapy approaches. For example, seeing a child several times a week over the school holidays can work much better for those who are not able to take time out of school. You can be assured that our therapists will advise you on what are the best and most cost-effective intervention approaches for your child.

The school holidays are always a challenge for parents, especially when it means your child has to stop therapy. There is always the worry that all the hard work and progress they made during the school term will all go to waste.

We understand this. For us, school holidays are a fantastic opportunity to offer teaching programmes based around supporting and practising communication, speech and language in a fun, engaging and relaxed way.

These programmes run throughout school holidays for all ages and degrees of difficulty and can be offered on a one-to-one basis or as part of a small group.

Your child will be supported by highly-trained therapists using the best techniques in activities such as baking, gardening, team games, arts and crafts, music, video making, design and technology, literacy and writing.
