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
I aim to empower not only the children that I support but also their parents and involved professionals.
Do You have concerns about your child’s communication? Fill one of these questionnaires we’ll discuss your concerns. I will provide you with action steps, evaluate if therapy is needed and guide you through this time of uncertainty
