This is What Our Clients Say
Research shows that online therapy has the same or better outcomes than ‘in person’ sessions. It’s more accessible, removes waiting lists and reduces anxiety by taking place in the comfort of the home or school, rather than a clinical setting. Combine that with our interactive software, proven to increase engagement and creativity, and it's clear why we're getting such incredible results.
We have benefited enormously from Speech therapy with Bev from my son's assessment input and therapy has been A*. I have also benefited from Bev's expertise to help my speech clarity.
