Who am I?
Hi, I’m Karen and I provide private Speech and Language Therapy for children of all ages. I am a fully qualified Speech and Language Therapist who is registered with the Health Professions Council and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. I usually work in Tamworth and the surrounding areas, visiting children in their homes, schools or nurseries to help them with their understanding and talking. I now offer private speech and language therapy face to face online. As therapy is offered online, I can now work with children from any location (as long as there is an internet connection).
In the past few weeks all of our lives have been turned upside-down because of the effects of Coronavirus. If we have children, they are now at home with us, we as parents are working from home and our daily routines have been totally disrupted. We are all trying to create some sense of normality for children despite the school closures. The safety and well-being of the families and children that I do speech therapy with is the priority for me and because of this, while we are in isolation, I have started connecting with children by providing speech and language therapy face to face, online, in the UK.
Face to face online sessions may be suitable for your child if:
- They are 3 years old or above
- You have a laptop or an ipad
- You have wifi connectivity
Benefits of face to face online therapy are:
- No travel costs
- Accessibility from all locations
- Continuous support for children
- Children remain engaged and supported
What do parents say:
“We were worried about how Charlie would adapt to doing his therapy sessions online, but we needn’t have. He focuses for longer and is more motivated than ever. We are so glad that therapy can carry on.”
Jo (mum of Charlie aged 4)
“Jessica has been struggling since her school has closed. Being able to keep doing her speech sessions, seeing a friendly and familiar face each week, has been fantastic for her. We have made so much progress and if this option wasn’t available, I’d be worried the progress would stop.”
Syrita (mum of Jessica aged 6)
