  • Targeted intervention for those identified with needs
  • Specialist input for those with more complex needs
  • An additional ‘Buy-in’ service to local schools
Our Values
Mastering speech, language and communicate is fundamental to a child’s learning, future happiness, social adjustment, emotional stability and self-esteem.  It equips them to achieve and make positive contributions to society.
