Once again, Hannah has provided an invaluable course for myself and my son (4).  We visited Hannah once a week for 5 weeks and in that time the improvement in my son’s speech was noticeable – a number of family members even commented on the difference in such a short space of time.  At first watching videos of myself interacting with my son seemed a bit daunting, but actually it has been extremely interesting and helpful in identifying activities and actions that aid his speech rather than impede it.  Hannah has also introduced us to some fun activities and games that we can do together.  My son in particular really enjoyed the sessions, especially as he saw it as a special treat away from his siblings!  I would not hesitate in recommending Hannah or contacting her again.

After being told we would have to wait 9 months for an NHS speech and language assessment we turned to Speaking Sense for help. Hannah was excellent throughout, spending time with our son and working out his particular strengths and weaknesses. She provided great advice and tips to help us with him at home and really good follow up support until we were able to be seen by the NHS, who immediately discharged our son due to the considerable progress he had made.

Hannah is professional and personable, during our daughter’s initial assessment she welcomed us all and made us feel comfortable. She provided us with helpful and practical advice on how to support our daughter through periods of dysfluency. We would certainly contact Hannah again in the future should we require further support.

I wanted to say a big thank you for your help, guidance and support with both me and C. You have given me the confidence I needed to talk with C in a way that I know is best for her to improve her speech and vocabulary. You have also made it fun for us both!

We are very grateful to Hannah for organising an assessment for our son within a week from our first contact and forwarding a detailed report within 2 days. Thank you for listening to our concerns and your professionalism.

I would thoroughly recommend Hannah to other parents seeking a detailed and expert look at  their child’s strengths and weaknesses. Hannah was able to offer timely and engaging activities which really had a noticeable impact upon my son’s speech, as well as providing follow up activities and a detailed report for reference.

After a formal complaint Fred got offered an NHS appointment in January and we are now waiting for filmed play sessions to give me more support. They identified pretty much the same as you with a little bit of improvement. It’s going slowly but it is getting better.
By way of a testimonial……We are all very grateful for your timely and in depth assessment which provides us with some real insight and helpful strategies for our boy’s language difficulties. You were reassuring and positive at a time of anxiety and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone considering a speech and language assessment for their child.

I asked Hannah to help with my concerns over my 3 year old son. My son felt at ease with Hannah and gained a good rapport with her. The tips Hannah gave us as parents have helped dramatically to improve our sons speech, behaviour and listening skills.

Thank you. Would recommend Hannah highly.

Hannah has worked closely with both my 11 year old son and 14 year old
daughter, both of whom had slight difficulties with their speech. Hannah’s
guidance has helped us see a vast improvement in both their speech
impediments.

My daughter was worried about it to the extent that she would
hesitate to answer questions in class in case her peers would comment. This
was affecting her confidence. This has consequently helped my daughters
self-confidence. She has now given a speech about her lunchtime club
activities to over 150 people at school.

Without Hannah’s expert hep my daughter would have struggled and lacked the confidence to do this. I would like to thank her for the help and patience she has shown throughout her time with my children.

From the moment I first contacted Hannah, I have been impressed with how professional, knowledgeable and friendly she has been.  Our assessment was arranged quickly and she had won over my very reluctant four year old within moments.
Our sessions with Hannah were fun and interactive for Freddie, well-structured and purposeful, as well as being fully explained for me, so I could then continue to work with him at home.  We were astounded by the progress he made with his speech, both on sounds he worked on with Hannah and in general.  The biggest improvement has been with his new found confidence, which has been gently encouraged and fostered by Hannah.  A term later, he seems a completely different little boy and I am a greatly relieved and happy parent.
Hannah, we are incredibly grateful to you for all your hard work with Freddie.  We could not be more delighted and would recommend you to anyone who would listen!
Many, many thanks,
Sarah and Freddie
