— Why Choose Us?
Four Fundamental Values
We conduct appropriate assessments that will identify if your child has any challenges.
As a parent, it’s important for you to know that we take the well-being of your child seriously. In order to ensure their growth and development, we conduct assessments that are specifically designed to understand if your child is facing any challenges or difficulties. These assessments are carefully chosen to be suitable for their age and needs. By conducting these assessments, we aim to identify if there are any areas where your child might need extra support or assistance. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your child’s strengths and areas that may require attention, so that together we can create the best plan for their overall growth and success.
We report frankly and honestly on that assessment.
As a parent, it’s essential for you to trust that we value transparency and honesty when it comes to reporting on your child’s assessment. We believe in providing you with a clear and accurate understanding of the results. Our reports are prepared with utmost care, ensuring that they are frank and honest in their assessment of your child’s strengths, areas of concern, and any potential problems that have been identified. We strive to present the information in a straightforward and accessible manner, enabling you to fully comprehend the findings and make informed decisions. We want you to feel confident in our assessment process and trust that our reports will be a valuable resource for you to advocate for your child’s needs and support their growth and development effectively.
We recommend therapy only if there is a need.
As professionals, we carefully evaluate the assessment results and consider various factors before making any recommendations. If we determine that your child would benefit from therapy to address specific concerns or challenges identified during the assessment, we will suggest it as a supportive option. Our intention is to provide appropriate interventions and resources to help your child thrive and overcome any difficulties they may be facing. We prioritize the well-being and development of your child, ensuring that therapy is recommended only when it is deemed necessary and beneficial for their overall growth and success.
We consult with other colleagues and professionals when appropriate to best meet the needs of your child (confidentially of course!).
As part of our commitment to providing the best possible care for your child, we believe in collaboration and seeking input from other experts when necessary. We understand that every child is unique, and their needs may require a multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, we may consult with other colleagues and professionals who have specialised knowledge or experience relevant to your child’s situation. These consultations are conducted confidentially to ensure your child’s privacy and protect sensitive information. By collaborating with other experts, we aim to gather diverse perspectives and tap into a wider range of expertise, enabling us to develop a comprehensive and tailored plan that best meets the specific needs of your child. Our priority is to ensure your child receives the most effective and appropriate support possible, and consulting with trusted professionals is one way we strive to achieve that goal.
We give you professional advice not just our opinion.

We are qualified in assessing and treating speech, language and literacy challenges. You are the expert in your child (among many other things) and we respect that. We work with you for the benefit of your child.
We are qualified in assessing and treating challenges related to speech, language, and literacy. We have the expertise to evaluate and address these specific areas of concern. However, we also acknowledge that you, as the parent, possess a wealth of knowledge and understanding about your child that we value and respect.

Our shared goal is to ensure that your child receives comprehensive and effective support by leveraging both our expertise and your intimate understanding of your child.
If we are not the best team to help your child reach their potential, we will let you know. We will do our best to refer you to other professionals that may better suit your child’s needs at that time.
If, during our assessment or treatment process, we determine that our team may not be the ideal fit for addressing your child’s specific needs, we will be transparent and honest in communicating this to you. Our priority is to provide the best care possible for your child, even if it means referring you to other professionals who may be better equipped to meet your child’s current needs. We have a network of trusted colleagues and professionals in various specialties, and we will make every effort to connect you with the right resources and expertise. Our aim is to ensure that your child receives the most appropriate and effective assistance on their journey toward reaching their potential.
