Parent of Child With Selective Mutism
Jayne’s consulting role has been really useful in relation to Selective Mutism and my daughter. Jayne has helped us create a real pathway towards talking. Besides her invaluable advice about sliding-in techniques, Jayne was also able to bring together a team of various professionals working on this issue i.e. the school’s staff, SENCO, key workers, CAHMS and ourselves, parents. After a few months of team work, my daughter recently started speaking to one person at school after two years of silence. She is making progress and we are so grateful. Thank you so much Jayne!
Parent of Child with Language Disorder
Jayne has been working with my son who’s 3 for the past few months. He was very delayed in his speech and was diagnosed with a language disorder. As a parent and knowing nothing about speech therapy it was a scary diagnosis but Jayne has been brilliant. My Son adores her visits and waits very excitedly for ‘the lady with the toys’ every week. Jayne plays games with him which he loves and he is constantly absorbing new words and sentence structure. He has come on leaps and bounds in the last few months and whilst there is still some hard work to be done we are looking forward to Austin starting school as normal in September level with his peers. I cannot thank Jayne enough for all her hard work and dedication!
Parent of Child with Delayed Speech
Jayne is warm, enthusiastic and has the patience of a saint! She has been seeing our son for a few weeks now for a delayed speech problem that occurred from having glue ear, and he adores her. He has come on leaps and bounds since seeing her and Jayne always makes the lessons fun whilst ensuring the job still gets done. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.
Parent of Child With Word Finding Difficulties
Jayne has been my 6 year old son’s speech therapist for the last 6 months and I cannot praise her highly enough.
She is really friendly and approachable and immediately put myself and my son at ease. She has since established a lovely working relationship with him, to the extent that he looks forward to his sessions with her! She has great clinical expertise and I have noticed a real improvement in my son’s speech and confidence with using language since he has been seeing her.
Jayne has also been really willing to liaise with school and has done this in a co-operative but authoritative way, providing recommendations that the school has been able to take on board and attending meetings with me. The support that Jayne has given me has been invaluable in helping me to navigate the complex Education and Health systems and given me confidence to advocate for my son in school.
Parent of a Young Person With a Stammer
Sandra worked with my son to control his stammer. Sandra has a wonderful friendly manor and made him feel very relaxed during their sessions. She spoke to him about his concerns and established exactly what they were and then provided very easy to understand methods of coping and controlling his stammer. This gave him a lot of confidence and a real sense of control. Sandra also gave us a clear breakdown at the end of the sessions, of what had covered and my son’s progress. By the end of the program he felt much more confident in himself and in his ability to communicate with his peers and in the classroom. We would highly recommend Sandra.
Sandra has a most wonderful way of working with children. Her energy is light, fun and so encouraging. My son actively looked forward to his sessions with Sandra. She taught him not only some great techniques to utilise for his stammer (which really helped) but also encouraged his confidence to speak, and to be proud of himself. I cannot recommend Sandra enough to other families. She is a brilliant specialist at what she does and I am so grateful to her for the work she did with our son, and the service she offers to children. Thank you!
