Importance of Speech Therapy
Early intervention is optimal for the remediation of a speech or language delay
- By Nursery/Reception age a child’s speech should be comprehensible to unfamiliar adults greater than 90% of the time
- Literacy development relies on phonemic and phonological awareness, which is facilitated by sound awareness
The impact of NOT tackling speech delayed can affect:
- Emotional development
- Literacy & Numeracy
- Mental Health
Is it right for my child?
- Fun and Modern Approach: By utilising fun and engaging digital technology, Video Therapy is exceptionally child - friendly. Today’s children are comfortable with technology and love using interactive digital game-based activities.
- Regularity: Children benefit from continual and regular therapy sessions.
- Flexibility: Book therapy sessions to suit your life
- Environment: For shy and more reserved children, video therapy is less intimidating than traditional face-to-face therapy from the comfort of their home.
- Parent/Carer Involvement: Video Therapy provides the capacity to remotely log in to recorded sessions for later reference or to be part of the real-time session -allowing parents or carers to observe their interaction and progress.
- Stress-free: Our Video - Therapy sessions are managed from the comfort of your home to eliminate the stress of travel or organising childcare for other children.
