A free initial telephone consultation available to all. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your concerns about your child’s specific speech and language development, as well as to learn more about what we can provide.
Following the initial assessment you may be offered therapy in one of a number of ways:
• Regular weekly therapy appointments
• Fortnightly appointments
• Monthly review appointments
• A home programme of activities with a review session scheduled for a later date
Both review appointment and therapy sessions last approximately 60 minutes
We offer joint OT and SLT assessment of children with multiple needs. Both comprehensive formal and informal assessments are conducted in a friendly, therapeutic manner with positive reinforcement throughout. We ensure both children and parents feel comfortable and at ease at all times.
Following assessment we devote the necessary time to discuss the findings alongside the most effective course of action. There is no obligation to attend further joint sessions following this assessment.
At Let's Expand Communication we provide specialist input into schools. We offer full school input which provides advice on how to improve the communication and speech needs of all children within your school. (Both ELKLAN training and bespoke training)
Our targeted intervention can provide either class based treatment (via specific groups for speech, language or social communication needs) or individual therapies for specific children.
At the first appointment the Speech & Language Therapist will carry out a comprehensive assessment which will take approximately an hour depending on the individual needs and age of your child.
Assessments are conducted in a friendly caring therapy space. A sensitive approach is taken with lots of positive reinforcement throughout, ensuring every child / parent feels comfortable and at ease at all times.
We will then devote the necessary time to discuss the findings of the assessment and the most effective course of action.
There is no obligation to attend further speech therapy sessions following the assessment.
These sessions generally last between 60 and 90 minutes.
