Thanks again Sharon for all your help in teaching me Makaton. I can go on to teach my son and have something and some way of communicating with him where there is no frustration or upset for either of us.
You have explained and taught in a way that I was completely able to understand. The little stories that came with the signs make it all the more memorable for me.
Sharon has been providing speech therapy for my son for almost three years. His speech has become so much clearer and last summer he was discharged from speech therapy. He wouldn't have got this far without her amazing work. Sharon is calm, kind and patient. The activities and games she works with the children are age appropriate and fun. I would happily recommend Sharon to anybody enquiring about speech therapy.
‘Working with Sharon was an absolute dream, for both me as the parent and for my child!
When I first made contact with her about my 6 year old daughter’s speech trouble, Sharon explained exactly what we needed to do in order to get up and running. I could tell right away that I was in safe hands.
She linked in with my daughter’s school as smoothly as could be and suggested seeing her there after our initial session at my house. She was very flexible in terms of working in a way that suited all of us. She made everything very simple.
When it came to the sessions themselves, my daughter absolutely loved them. She was so engaged and eager to please Sharon, who had the most delightful manner imaginable with her. I didn’t really know what to expect, having never seen a speech therapy lesson before and I was thrilled to see how fun and engaging Sharon made it; all the while chipping away at the issue so skilfully.
I couldn’t believe how rapid my daughter’s progress was, especially as I was worried that she was a little older than would be ideal to be commencing speech therapy. Sharon ironed out the long-standing issue she had forming the ‘ch’ and ‘dge’ sounds (as well as some other slight issues she identified) in around 10 sessions.
I can’t recommend her highly enough. Sharon has solved all my worries around my daughter’s issue and now she can move into the juniors feeling nothing but confident about her speech.’
My 3.5 year old daughter looked forward to her sessions with Sharon. The range of games and activities selected always held my little girl's attention - something that's not easy to do! This resulted in my daughter making progress in just a few sessions. Sharon's calm and kind approach made us feel at ease from the very beginning, I would highly recommend her.
