I am also a local speech therapist and have a clinic near Clapham South and Balham.
I specialise in motor speech difficulties and can easily help your child with their lisp. I have over 20 years of experience.
Speech sounds produced are the result of how well we move our jaw, lips, and tongue. So I target the movement patterns of the jaw, lips, and tongue rather than the sound itself. I make sure the movements are graded and efficient for sequenced movements. This makes integration and consolidation of sounds much easier and quicker.
I assess how the motor speech sub-systems move and target these using a developmental hierarchy. Adolescents and teenagers can usually learn the new motor patterns fairly quickly, but will then just need to practice. They will be able to feel when they aren’t making the correct movements so they can adjust this themselves.
I use this technique for children as young as 18 months and also with adults.
Please feel free to contact me if you would like to book an initial consultation.
