Speech therapist for kid (age 5)- any recommendations?

Postby Alira0909 » Thu Aug 26, 2021 8:16 am

Hi,

Does anyone have experience and/or recommendation for a good speech therapist?

My daughter - now age 5 - has a heavy lisp and it is now creating difficulties for others around her to understand what she says if they are new to knowing her. I am just looking for a consultation now to evaluate her. Schools tend to wait until age 6, but hers is so heavy across different sounds, I would just like an individual evaluation.

We are ready to go private - so any reccomendations or experience very welcomed! Thank you.

I am sorry to hear that. Try The Wimbledon Practise, they have many great speech therapists and the atmosphere is really welcoming, too.

Thanks so much for the recommendation!

Yes happy to help your daughter with her lisp. I specialise in motor speech difficulties and and
use a highly effective technique called PROMPT. It is the best way to treat motor speech and would recommend seeking out a well trained PROMPT speech therapist.

Feel free to contact me on 07951228557 if you need help.

Best wishes,
Rosie
