Why is speech and language therapy important?

Communication is at the center of who we are and how we experience the world around us.

It is fundamental in all of our lives, both socially and academically. Communicating helps us to have our needs met, make friends, learn new things and join in activities with others.

It is the family centered approach of Speaking Sense that allows everyone around the child to support them in meeting their individual needs. Speaking Sense offers families the chance to create targets and agree outcomes for any services provided, to ensure real and positive differences can be made for every young person.

We feel so lucky to have Hannah as a Speech Therapist. From the start, Hannah listened to our concerns and paid attention to our family style. This helped hugely tailoring the best Speech Therapy for our son…

Sophie, Parent, Exeter

I can not recommend Hannah highly enough. She worked with my son for over a year and made each session so much fun for him. He made great progress but what was more important was that he kept his confidence as a result.

We are abroad a lot so it was very convenient to be able to make a 
private appointment with Hannah for a speech assessment.  Our daughter  
was a little later than average speaking, having been born early.   
Hannah spent over an hour with us and gave some very helpful  
suggestions about ways to encourage speaking and to expand our  
daughter’s vocabulary.  She has a good rapport with children and our  
daughter took to her quite well.  The follow-up report was also a  
quite comprehensive summary of what we covered.

We turned to Speaking Sense for help with our 2 year old son. Hannah was so friendly and really took time to get to know our sons personality in order to tailor our sessions to his needs. Hannah made us feel comfortable and positive about the changes we could make to help our sons language skills develop. We have all made fantastic progress under the watchful eye of Hannah and would highly recommend her to anyone needing support with their child’s speech and language development. 

We found that Hannah offered a very professional service. After making contact we did not have to wait long for a thorough assessment that detailed some moderate delay in our 4 year old. This meant that we could get going with treatment before she started school – we were lucky enough to be able to afford private sessions after preschool suggested that the NHS waiting list would be over 6 months. In addition, it was great to have the option of home visits as well as the sessions at the clinic. My 4 year old enjoyed her sessions with Hannah who was kind and patient with her throughout.
