Julie is a talented and very experienced speech therapist. She is really professional and had a great rapport with my 2 year old.
Julie would liaise with my little boy’s nursery and send both me and them copies of the activities that she had recommended. This was a very effective way to keep on top of my son's development and ensure he was getting the best support possible. The resources that she provided were modern and fun and my son always wanted to do them, as he saw it as just 'playing'.
We are thrilled with our little boy's progress under Julie's care. He is 5 years old and was really struggling with some very basic sounds; Julie's expertise and patience have been brilliant and we've turned a major corner with his speech.
Julie was always professional and spent a lot of time with me and my then 3 year old autistic son trying to effectively implement the PACT program. She was taking videos and discussing with me my son’s progress and setting goals and targets for next visits. She liaised with the nursery and helped with my son’s statement. Highly recommended.
We asked Julie to assess the speech and language profile of our three-year old son, who seemed to be having some some difficulties with social communication. We found Julie to be very professional and experienced. She very quickly established a good relationship with him, managing to engage and hold his full attention and cooperation (which is not always easy to do!) by making the sessions fun and interactive. Julie was also always happy to go the extra mile in discussing our concerns and providing reassurance.
We contacted Julie when our son was four as we were concerned that he was struggling with certain sounds. She began working with him initially on a weekly basis and over the following year he came on leaps and bounds, both in terms of his speech and his confidence. Julie always made the sessions fun and interactive using a variety of activities to engage my son and maintain his concentration. She also provided us with materials to use with him at home which was really helpful. She has a lovely nature and was always really patient with my little boy. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her.
