Welcome to Natalie Wright Children's Speech and Language Therapy
Hello. My name is Natalie Wright and I'm a Children's Speech and Language Therapist working in Exeter and the surrounding areas.
I offer services to help children develop their best possible communication skills, with the aim of enhancing the quality of their lives and the lives of their families.
I see children in places that are familiar to them, usually in their homes, early years settings or schools.
I help children aged 0 to 5 years with communication difficulties (known as speech, language and communication needs or SLCN), including:
- Communicating wants, needs, thoughts and feelings
- Understanding what people say
- Talking (words, sentences, stories)
- Having conversations
- Talking clearly and fluently.
I also help children of all ages with selective mutism (a phobia of talking).
My vision is for children to develop their best possible communication skills as early as possible, to help them to thrive socially, emotionally and in their learning.
My passion is empowering parents, carers and practitioners to help children become confident and independent communicators in their everyday lives.
My specialism is helping children who are at the early stages of learning to communicate and talk using parent-child interaction therapy.
I have a special interest in working as part of a team to help the communication skills of children with autism and selective mutism (a phobia of talking).
Are you a parent or carer with concerns about your child's communication development?
Would you like your child to be assessed to find out if their communication skills are developing as expected for their age? Would you like support to help your child to develop their best possible communication skills?
I offer friendly, supportive and flexible services tailored to the individual needs of children and families.
Early Years Settings
Do you have concerns about the communication development of children in your setting?
Would you like to identify children with speech, language and communication needs as early as possible? Would you like to help children to communicate to the best of their abilities during your daily routine?
I offer friendly, supportive and flexible services tailored to the individual needs of early years settings.
Do you work with vulnerable children at risk of, or already experiencing, speech, language and communication difficulties?
Would you like these children to be identified as early as possible? Would you like parents, carers and practitioners to feel empowered to help these children communicate to the best of their abilities?
I offer friendly, supportive and flexible services tailored to the individual needs of organisations.
