Thoughts of children against the black chalkboards

At Modern Speechie we want every child to be the best communicator they can be! That is why we are committed to using-based practice to assess, diagnose and treat children who are experiencing difficulties with their talking, listening and/or learning.

How are we different?

.

We are a mobile service, which means that all of our services are provided in the child’s home, childcare or school setting. We believe working in an environment that is familiar to the child is important because it gives us greater flexibility and allows us to tailor our approach to best suit the unique strengths and difficulties of each child. Furthermore it helps children remain calm and confident, which in turn helps them to consolidate their learning and achieve their communication goals.
