    Excellent progress made with Lindas expertise
    My son has made excellent progress with Linda over the past 7 months, she is patient, caring, supportive and has lots of methods for working with my son who is not always the most co-operative. We are so happy with the progress he has made with Lindas help and encouragement. I would fully recommend her to anyone.

    Outstanding therapist with a real gift for getting the best out of small children
    Linda has worked with our family for over a year now: her paediatric experience has been invaluable in dealing with our sons who have (variously) Aspergers, verbal dyspraxia and global developmental delay. Her insight is acute and her suggestions sensible. Not only has she provided consistently excellent speech therapy, she has been a wise source of encouragement and advice to both family and school. She is generous with her time and highly expert in her field. She is also a person of great kindness and personal integrity. My sons have seen dozens of medical “experts” and in both expertise and compassion she stands out a mile.

    Brilliant, has transformed our son
    We started using Linda in September 2010 and see her every Sunday. Our son, who is now 5, had been seen by NHS therapists from the age of two-and-a-half and had made very little progress. By April 2010, he was still only speaking in vowels and wasn’t much clearer by the time he started school.
    Linda did a first assessment and diagnosed speech dyspraxia. She gave him a tailor-made programme of work and we saw immediate improvement. He now speaks very clearly and we are working on his grammar.
    Linda is brilliant with Adam and manages to gain and keep his attention, giving lots of praise and encouragement. She is also happy for me, mum, to sit in and watch so that I can implement what she’s teaching during the week. After the session is over, Linda always stays for a chat with us about how Adam’s progressing and what we might work on next.
    Linda’s also been very helpful in preparing reports when needed and liaising with school and NHS therapists.
    I can’t recommend Linda highly enough.
