Nicola Haworth - Paediatric speech & language therapist

Independent therapy

Watching a child struggle to communicate can be a frustrating and upsetting time, but speech and language therapy can help your child overcome these difficulties.

Whether you are concerned that your child might be having trouble developing their communication skills and would like to know if there is anything you can do to help, or if you know your child has speech and language difficulties and would like to see a private therapist, I can work with you and your child to help them overcome their problems through fun and practical exercises.

I provide an independent speech and language therapy services for children aged 2-12 years with a range of speech, language and communication difficulties.

I can provide assessment, advice and therapy for:
  • children who need help attention and listening
  • children who need help with interaction and non verbal communication
  • children who are late to talk
  • children with delayed or disordered comprehension (understanding of language)
  • children with delayed or disordered expressive language
  • children having difficulties with their speech sounds or those who have verbal dyspraxia
  • children who stammer or have dyslfuency.

If you'd like to communicate with your child even though they are too young to talk I can provide stand alone advice sessions for people who would like to know how to use sign language to encourage early speech and language development.
Thank you very much for all your help over the past few years. Just having you there to talk over concerns has been such a help not to mention your support. John has loved coming to see you which makes all the difference.
