Cardiff Speech and Language Therapy can provide...
Sessions either at your home or your child’s nursery, school or college for your convenience and your child’s comfort
Sessions offered at evening and weekends to fit around your family schedule
Free initial telephone conversation where we can discuss your child, your concerns and the service you feel you require
Full assessment, advice and planning of next steps
1:1 therapy sessions delivered in an environment which is familiar to your child
Free therapy resources for use during and between sessions where appropriate.
Before we start, it's really important that we find out if we are a good fit for each other!
I offer a free consultation. This will allow me to understand what you want and for you to understand what I can offer.
This can be done via email or over the phone.
Consultations typically last 30 mins.
Full and comprehensive assessments for speech language and communication concerns.
Assessments can usually be carried out 1-2 weeks after your initial consultation.
Appointments are offered in your own home or your child's school / nursery at a time that is convenient to you, even on weekends!
You can also choose to receive a summary report from your assessment or a detailed report with recommendations and targets
I believe therapy should be fun and exciting, but also easy enough for you to continue with in your own time. I work closely with you to set goals and targets that work for you.
I use a range of evidence based approaches when carrying out therapy sessions.
Sessions can be carried out at a range of locations including at home, school or virtually via teletherapy (online video calling)
Sessions typically last 1 hour. This includes 15 mins of verbal feedback and target setting.
