The Childhood Communication Consultancy is a multi-disciplinary service that helps children and their families with a range of communication and social difficulties to be more independent. The experienced, professional team is comprised of Sensory Integration therapists for those children who have sensory processing disorders, which can inhibit communication in social situations, Educational Psychologists who assess children with educational needs, and Speech and Language therapists who work with children with a range of communication and speech problems.
This Speech Therapy service in Bedfordshire is able to assess and work with children aged up to 19 years. They work with children who have speech delay, communication delay and speech disorders. Associated difficulties for the child may include attention and deficit disorders, listening difficulties, speech and writing problems and communication disorders such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The Speech and Language team works closely with the child, parents and school establishment to assess and then support the child with these difficulties.
How is therapy delivered?
Therapy is done in a highly personalised manner with a child-centred approach. It is also very low demanding as the majority of assessment and support is provided through play. All therapy is planned in relation to the child’s age, ability and preferred interest. So, if the child particularly likes transport and playing with toy cars and trains, then the therapist will use these toys as part of speech and language play therapy.
Speech and language therapy can help a child build up their confidence, self-esteem and help them to be more independent in the world. To find out more about the Childhood Communication Consultancy and how they can help your child, please visit their website.
