At the centre, we provide comprehensive assessment and therapy for children who experience a range of difficulties associated with acquiring, developing and maintaining all forms of communication.
Our extensive range of services includes help for children experiencing difficulties with understanding language, communicating using complete sentences, speech production/ articulation, stuttering and childhood apraxia of speech. We provide support for children who have difficulty learning to read, write and spell and we strongly aim to improve your child’s use of language related to social skills.
We offer a range of support for a variety of communication needs, including learning difficulties, Autism Spectrum Disorder, developmental delay, disability and hearing impairment.
