'Having good communication skills is an essential life skill. 1 in 10 children have speech language and communication difficulties.'
The Bercow Report, 2018
Evidence shows that early intervention with Speech and Language Therapy is key in helping children reach their full potential. Here at Communication Station we are passionate about offering timely intervention that is tailored around your child's needs. At Communication Station we believe that children learn best in a familiar environment, we therefore offer appointments in your own home at a time that suits you.

Did you know?
Initial telephone consultation
We offer an initial free telephone consultation to discuss any concerns about your child's speech, language and communication and discuss how we can help. This usually lasts around 15 minutes.
During the initial assessment we will fully assess your child's' difficulties at a level appropriate to them.We will provide verbal feedback and recommendations to help support your child. This will last between 60-90 minutes which includes a summary report of the session.
If your child requires input we will provide individualised therapy. We believe that the best place to see your child is in a familiar environment. All appointments are therefore offered in your own home.
For the best results we recommend that parents / carers are present throughout to enable continued practice of the therapy throughout the week.
An initial summary report is provided as part of your initial assessment. If further, more in depth reports are required this can be requested.
