COVID-19

 

Our Services

We recognise that due to Covid-19, 2020 and 2021 have been stressful years for everyone. We have children ourselves and appreciate how difficult it has been for everyone to balance everyone’s needs.

We are now able to offer face to face therapy again and we will continue to offer all our services within government guidelines. As time passes we will keep developing our services to abide by the changing guidance and regulations.

If you have any concerns please contact us to discuss your child’s needs.

We recognise that due to Covid-19, 2020 has been a stressful year for everyone. It may be that you are shielding to protect a vulnerable member of your household. It may be that you are anxious that your child’s regular support services are not operating. Or perhaps you are trying to juggle working from home with supporting your child’s learning.

We have children ourselves and appreciate how difficult it has been for everyone to balance everyone’s needs.

We are continuing to operate as flexibly as possible, so contact us to discuss your child’s needs..

Covid 19’s effect on children

You many have seen lots of coverage in the news recently about how children’s speech and language development has been effected by COVID 19 and the lock downs. Children have missed time in education and also social time with family and friends and this is bound to effect their communication skills. We have seen in our everyday practice how some children are needing an extra boost to help them develop language and social skills. If you are concerned about your child’s communication development after lock down please get in touch for professional advice.

 

Telehealth

During lockdown, we will be operating as normally as possible. At our first consultation we will carry out a risk assessment with you to plan the best approach for your child. This may be face to face sessions, telehealth appointments or maybe waiting for the right time to begin therapy. We will always offer face to face sessions where these are possible as we believe that most children get the most benefit from face to face therapy.

Our telehealth sessions are slightly shorter than face to face therapy and are therefore priced realistically. This is because (as we know) it is difficult to concentrate on a screen for 60 minutes so we find shorter sessions more effective.

If you have any questions about telehealth or how our services will run during lockdown please contact us.
