Cumbria Speech and Language Consultancy offers speech therapy and communication support for children across Cumbria. They offer private, one-to-one sessions with children as well as school services. Therapy is led by Joy Wills. She has over 15 years experience in speech and language therapy. Wills has hosted a variety of group and individual therapy sessions and assessments. Additionally, she is an experienced educator and can provide training for school staff. She likes to guide children and believes speech and language therapy should always be fun.
For private therapy, Wills offers informal assessments and observations. Assessments can take place in the home or at school. A written report will be produced and then regular sessions can commence. It is recommended that a parent or teacher is present so that activities can be practiced between sessions. Sessions are constructed around play and songs that are tailored to the child’s needs and interests. Additionally, review meetings are possible upon request. If you think your child may have speech difficulties, more information can be for on Cumbria Speech and Language Consultancy’s website.
In schools, Wills offers audits and specialised training for staff. This allows staff to properly assist students with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). Audits can identify gaps in knowledge and a wide variety of training is available from initial education to specialised intervention training. Cumbria Speech and Language Consultancy has also worked inside schools to provide assessments and therapy to pupils with communication needs. More information can be found here.
Cumbria Speech and Language Consultancy is very accessible. Wills works closely with parents, teachers and children to formulate tailored therapy that works for them.
Similarly, she can travel to you. Therefore, therapy can take place in an environment that is most comfortable and accessible for the child.
