private Speech & Language Therapy testimonial from parents in the North West UK Lancashire Merseyside Cheshire South Cumbria

"Frances was wonderful with my two children. Her sessions were fun yet very thorough and she provided with me a lot of guidance and support. Their speech is now perfect, and they are much more confident little boys. I would highly recommend her to anybody."
(Allison from Chorley)

"We found Frances very knowledgeable about our child's learning difficulty. She listened very carefully about our concerns and drew a series of recommendations to aid our child in his transition from junior to high school. This has proved invaluable both to our child and the teachers at school in determining the best course of action to maximize his potential. Thank you very much for all your help".

Sessions are in your own home/environment, where believe it or not, Euan was more cooperative and concentrated more than in sessions at the clinic. Also, sessions were at a time convenient for us and no travelling.
Seeing the same therapist helped a lot. Also, it was good for Euan to continue to have speech therapy in between the 6 weekly clinic blocks.
We think it was important that you were keen to liaise with Euan's NHS therapist and work on different areas. It was good that you were able to see him in school and provide advice and support for the teaching assistants.
Euan – Adlington, Chorley

Libby enjoyed the variety of different games used to improve her speech. It made the learning fun and easy for her to participate.
Using an independent speech and language therapist educated both the parents and child. As parents we were unsure what to focus on and felt that we were partly to blame for problems. We are now aware that this is not the case and have the correct tools to use in the home environment.
