I cannot rate Anna highly enough. She has worked with us and our boy, aged 9, who suffers with Selective Mutism, an anxiety related condition which prevents him from speaking socially and at school. She has spent time with him and supported us and the school with strategies that have resulted in a boy who
Anna is not only a really experienced and knowledgeable language therapist, but she is also superb with kids. She worked with my daughter, who has Developmental Language Disorder (DLD) fairly intensively over a 6 month period. During this time Anna helped her really improve her communication skills and also massively increased her confidence, helping her
Anna helped my son Marco from about the age of 3.5 till about 5 years old. She has been an absolute life saver, amazing with the wee one and superb at explaining to me and husband how to best support his needs. We are raising our children as multilingual, and as her own experiences were
Anna worked with my 4 year old daughter for a year to help us with her phonological disorder. She struggled to make many sounds and her speech was difficult for those outside of the family to understand. Anna’s style of therapy is great fun and built around play, which kept my daughter focused and interested.
Anna brought my child on by leaps and bounds. He suffered from a very bad speech impediment and she was able to help draw him out of his shell and to help turn him into a confident and conversant child. A professional, warm person, she is able to relate to and empathize with children and
My 14 year old son had minor issues with some elements of his speech and was starting to become self-conscious about them. Anna worked with him for 4 sessions and we have all seen a marked difference in the areas that were concerning him. Anna is incredibly professional, clearly treats each of her clients as
My 9 year old son had a lateral lisp and struggled with ‘Th’ sounds. Anna worked with him over six sessions which were fun and interesting and provided exercises for us to continue with, between her visits. We have seen a huge improvement with his speech and my son is much more confident and happier.
I am not sure what we would have done without Anna. She has vast experience in Selective Mutism, something not even doctors know how to deal with. She has helped us so much! Our daughter has not overcome her Selective mutism but she has become a different person in front of others and we as
In his pre-school year, aged about 4.5 yrs, my son was having some difficulty being understood and getting increasingly frustrated with this. There were a number of sounds that he couldn’t say at all and some that he could say only at the beginning of a word but not in the middle. He used unusual
Anna provided a course of speech therapy to our 4 year old daughter Savannah who was born profoundly deaf and wears cochlear implants. Anna was very professional and conducted the initial assessment which highlighted the areas of focus. During the course, we observed improvements in Savannah’s speech and by the end of the course it
Anna is a wonderful speech therapist. She met with my daughter three times to work on her tongue thrust and she made so much progress in such a short period. She made learning and practicing the sounds fun through games and stories. My daughter looked forward to every session and was disappointed when they stopped.
Anna has an excellent professional manner but also makes the sessions fun for the child. My child found the exercises easy to learn and utilise. The results after a terms worth of sessions were brilliant and I have my bright confident son back to his loud and talkative self without hoarseness or vocal weakness. Here
I cannot recommend Anna highly enough. She helped my son who did not speak to any adult in school until p3, to gain confidence and he is now in p5 and able to approach the teacher and initiate speech. Anna worked with my son at his pace, she gently gained his confidence through play, starting
Our child has been suffering from Selective Mutism and only speaks to a small number of fellow pupils in the same class. Anna is a specialist in this condition and with her help, our child has now widened their circle of friends. Her relaxed manner puts children at ease. This gave my child confidence to
Anna has helped 2 of my children with their speech development. They were both under 5 at the time and saw Anna regularly. Through structured play sessions, Anna helped to improve their speech. They both had different problems, one had a speech delay and the other, quite an unusual way of talking, missing out key
Anna has been incredible over the past year working with us to help our son overcome his SM. Anna’s passion for working with children has undoubtedly changed our lives. We felt so lost before we had Anna on our side as SM is very rare. Anna has fantastic strategies and works closely with other professionals
Our 3 year old boy suffered from a severe speech disorder where he was not able to be understood by anyone but his closest family making him retreat from people. Anna was able to quickly recognise the problem, offer a course of treatment and advise how to liaise with the NHS and Nursery Staff to
My son Lucas was diagnosed with selective mutism at the age of 5. We had never heard about selective mutism before this. At the beginning we thought that his silence was related to bilingualism. But when we had this diagnose we decided to look for a specialist in this matter. It wasn’t easy to find
Anna is my son’s first Speech therapist before we moved to USA. She is very open minded, easy to communicate, professional and most importantly, cares for her “little friends”. When my child started therapy with Anna he was about 27 months. He didn’t know how to imitate sounds when he started but he progressed in
This was definitely a five star service. I was delighted to find Anna as a speech therapist for our adopted daughter who had had a difficult start in life and was language delayed as a result. I found the sessions truly validating and supportive in giving me the skills to communicate most effectively with our
Anna worked with my son before and just after he started school and the results were fantastic. He now has lovely clear speech and we are so grateful. Anna was friendly and put him at ease right away. The therapy was all based around games and fun exercises and Anna took the time to teach
