Child's Lisp - Anyone have a recommendation for a private speech therapist?

Postby RaniSW11 » Wed Dec 15, 2021 11:48 pm

Hi,

My 5 year old has a strong lisp.  I understand she will be put in the system for support at age 6, however her teacher recommended we also have an option to go private before.  

Does anyone have any local recommendations in Clapham/Battersea/ Wandsworth /Balham area?  

thanks!

Hi RaniSW11,

Have you considered having your daughter assessed for tongue tie?
I have a friend who had her 4 year old looked at the same time as having her baby’s tongue tie cut and the tongue tie specialist said that the older child did have a tie that could impact speech and there are ways to have it cut as an older child. A biological dentist can also help if there are any ties.

I could be completely off the mark, but thought it was worth mentioning just incase!

Hi,

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.
