Training and coaching for parents who have children with behavioural difficulties.

We use video therapy intervention. Particularly useful since the Covid 19 global Pandemic. Training includes Keena Cummins - VERVE and Michael Palin Centre London - Parent Chid Interaction Therapy (PCIT); these are just some of the evidence based strategies used.

We are able to offer a variety of training courses to school staff and nursery staff to meet the needs of children who have speech, language and communication needs. This training can be either specific to the child's needs or generic to suit the needs of all children in the class and therefore benefit the whole class. A few examples of training courses include:

  • (Andy Bondy, PhD, and Lori Frost, MS, CCC-SLP) Picture exchange communication system (Pecs)
  • Training from (Gina Davies) Attention Autism
  • (LeGoff et al 2014) - Lego Therapy an evidence based approach that aims to develop social communication skills in autistic children, such as sharing, turn-taking, following rules, using names and problem-solving.

We are able to offer training in Cued Articulation to Parents, school and nursery staff.

"I was reluctant to look into speech therapy for years, but I couldn’t be happier that I did. Anna quickly made me feel safe and helped me organise my thoughts and feelings towards my stammer. Each session gave me tons to think about and work on at my own pace. I never felt out of place or helpless.
One of my fears going in was feeling like just another patient, thankfully this could not have been further from the truth. The experience I got felt very tailored to me and my needs. I wasn’t sure what it was that I was looking for but it is safe to say that I found it

"I think Anna is amazing at what she does. In a few short minutes she transformed my understanding of how I should communicate with my Dyspraxic son and how I could help him to develop speech. Anna made it clear that it is important that the interactions I have with my son should be fun and enjoyable for him.."

"Anna, thank you very much for your help and kindness.."
