We offer a wide variety of speech and language therapy services for early years as well as older children and young adults. The difficulties with which we help include delayed and disordered expressive language and problems with understanding what is said.  We also offer help with attention, communication and social skills development as well as behaviour issues associated with poor language development.

 Little Talkers was established in 2004 as a service that was passionate about supporting children and teenagers with their speech, language and communication skills. We are a multi-professional team of specialist therapists and consultants. Each one of us is highly qualified in our field of expertise.  All therapists are DBS checked and registered with HCPC as well as their respective professional body.  Supervision sessions and continuing professional development opportunities are provided for our team members so that we work to the highest professional standards while maintaining a fun, professional and motivated working relationship with our clients.

Our Services can be at your home, school or nursery.

In the school and nursery setting we are able to support your child in a familiar environment for learning. We are highly experienced in supporting and training staff on your child’s needs.

At home we can support your child in the place where they are most likely to feel happy and relaxed.

We can provide full assessments, reports, programmes and targets before starting one to one or group therapy.

We’re inspired to see every individual being able to communicate to his or her full potential. We are a dedicated, caring and professional team and we’re here to support your child in becoming a motivated ‘little talker’.

We are committed to all aspects of creative, cognitive, positive behaviour, hearing, linguistic and social communication development for children and young adults. We believe in a multi-professional approach to assessment and intervention, and personalised learning and support for our Service users.
