Hannah worked with my son for over 3 years. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly. She was brilliant at interacting with and engaging my autistic son and was always so calm and patient…
We invited Hannah to assess our 5 year old daughter to enable us to address our concerns about her speech and language. Hannah was very approachable right from the start and her friendly manner quickly connected with our daughter who was happy to return plenty of attention. Having spent a productive period with her, Hannah took her time to clearly explain initial thoughts and made helpful suggestions as to how to encourage our child’s development straight away. As promised we received a full report of our child’s assessment within a few days. I’m extremely pleased we invited Hannah to visit and conduct her assessment and would not hesitate to recommend her regarding a child’s communication.
I can’t thank Hannah enough for all her fantastic input she had with my daughter with Autism. When she started with us Ellie spent most of her time running in circles around the room, flitting from one thing to another and never engaging with anyone. Hannah not only showed Ellie that other people have a purpose through play; she really tapped into her interests to get her motivated to engage. Her eye contact has increased so much as well as her ability to concentrate on table top activities increasing her joint communication.
Hannah always is imaginative and able to go with Ellie’s mood and motivation, which always varied on the days she came. Plus Hannah always gives ideas of the way we can subtly integrate her therapy into our normal day to day life and play.
Hannah certainly has proved to be a huge asset to our family and we would highly recommend her to anyone who wished to engage her services.
We were concerned about our 2 year old twins’ speech and language development and contacted Hannah to carry out an assessment. After meeting Hannah and receiving the assessment reports, we then decided to start weekly sessions.
Our twins were always excited when Hannah arrived and really enjoyed the sessions. Over the past 6 months their speech and understanding has improved significantly and we are really grateful to Hannah for her help.
Hannah has also given us as parents more confidence in helping develop their speech by providing us with ideas for games/activities. Hannah was always punctual and professional and we would highly recommend her if anyone is looking for a speech therapist for their child.
Our son found Hannah very approachable and he was quickly at ease with her. We found her to be very professional, thorough and honest in her assessment, particularly as she advised that no therapy was necessary for our son. She explained things to us clearly and I would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend.
When we became concerned about our 5 year old son’s clarity of speech we contacted Hannah and following assessment attended weekly/fortnightly sessions. He responded so well to Hannah who was extremely patient and engaging. We have found her very supportive and knowledgeable and she was always very clear of the objectives of the sessions. We, along with others, have noticed huge improvements in our son’s speech and he has now been discharged from therapy. Our son was always happy to see Hannah and as the sessions progressed so did his confidence. We would recommend Hannah to anybody without any hesitation.
Hannah has a wonderful way of relating to children and our daughter loved her sessions with her from the outset. Initially Hannah did a home visit to assess Isabella and she was very thorough, providing a written assessment within a few days. Isabella’s speech and sounds have improved greatly since she started seeing Hannah and we as parents have a better idea of what we can do to help her ourselves. Hannah has a very calm, reassuring manner and numerous imaginative games to engage little ones. I cannot recommend Speaking Sense and Hannah highly enough.
Hannah provided me with a prompt, thorough assessment followed by sound and sensible advice to managing my son’s speech difficulties. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
Hannah is a professional and reliable individual who is passionate about helping children to communicate better. She is very child friendly and approachable, quickly building a rapport with my 3 year old son in his first session. L’s forming of words and clarity has improved greatly since working with Hannah and she has provided us with the tools to continue to help him going forward. L looked forward to his sessions with Hannah and she motivated him well by using lots of different media and games. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.
