Parents in West Bridgford
“When Noah started it was very difficult for anyone outside his immediate family to understand what he was saying. Within six months his speech has improved so much that we no longer feel we have to translate, he can have conversations with others and be understood.
We’ve had so many positive comments about the improvements in his speech and we have no doubt its down to the therapy.
We would always be happy to recommend Speech Therapy Specialists to anyone who has children struggling with their speech.”
