Speech and language therapist for children
Welcome to Wordsteps, my name is Anna Biavati-Smith and I am a private Specialist Speech and Language Therapist based in Edinburgh.
I have a lovely therapy room where you can come and feel relaxed with your child, and my aim is to play and make your child feel at home because this will help your child to find it easier to transfer skills they were learning in therapy
