"The input you have given us as a family and to the school has been invaluable. Two years ago when we realised our son was struggling with his speech, we were really worried about his uncertain future. I really felt like you held our hand as he transitioned from pre-school to school, then into year one - makes it all a little less worrying! I was thinking back to our first sessions where you videoed us interacting with him, and thought about how far we've come."  
Parent 
Natalie you were so thorough, patient and helpful. You were very friendly and informative. We were so grateful for your time and input. Although we only had one session with you, you were very helpful in advising how we could help our son. I found it particularly helpful observing the time you gave him to enable his responses and how you set out the activities with visual aids. The information you provided on dysfluent speech was also very useful.

"Natalie's guidance throughout the therapy was fantastic and after a relatively short time our son has improved so much. The video playback (seeing yourself and your child playing together) was particularly helpful as it really homes in on the techniques. I can't say it was easy, as it was a challenge some days trying to fit in the 5-minute 1:1 play sessions, but it was all worth it."

Parent 
"Thank you for your work with our daughter and the thorough report, which we feel will stand us in good stead for seeking further help. The report is a very accurate picture of her strengths and challenges, so thank you for being so thorough; we really appreciate the time and effort that you have put into preparing this." 
Parent 
 
"I have just realised that whilst I have sent your report on to staff in school who work with this child, I have not thanked you personally yet for sending it through and for all the work you put into it. Thanks so much for all the information provided. It will help us so much in honing the support offered to her in school and also in supporting mum with the EHCP application."
