As part of your therapy journey your therapist we may recommend some specific therapy programs to assist in achieving your goals including:

The use of alternative augmentative communication (AAC) strategies can support people with communication difficulties.

When working with children we use a family-centered model, supporting caregivers and children to develop skills, knowledge and understanding as we all work together.

Hanen programs are evidence-based and world-renowned parent-training programs designed to teach parents how to implement speech and language therapy into their everyday activities with their child.

Our early intervention program is guided by the Early Start Denver Model.

We teach strategies aimed at increasing successful classroom participation to help children in their transition from preschool to school

LEGO Therapy is a ‘play based’ therapy method for children and applies the therapeutic benefits of play.

We offer therapy with a peer to work on social goals. This is done on a needs basis and when there is a well matched peer also looking for pair work.

This is for 3 to 5 year olds where we offer social groups in the holidays, and where the main activity is art or craft. Within these groups, the child’s individual goals are supported by the therapist.
