My Services - how I can help
Speech and language therapy
I offer assessment and therapy of children in kindergarten and primary school (ages 2 - 11) with any type of speech, language and communication need. I see children in Darmstadt, Frankfurt and surrounding areas across Hessen.
I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to discuss your child's needs and to get to know each other. This can be done via mobile or Skype.
Following the phone consulation, an initial assessment at your home or child's school can be arranged. Included with the initial assessment will be a report with recommendations for yourselves as parents as well as the school staff, if required. The assessment usually takes approximately 1 - 1.5 hours. From the detailed information gained from the assessment, an appropriate treatment plan will be recommended.
On going therapy
Therapy sessions at home or school can be arranged to support the development of your child's speech and language needs. They usually take place once a week and progress is regularly reviewed. Activities can be demonstrated to parents or teaching staff to be continued between sessions. Therapy sessions last between 30 and 45 minutes.
School readiness assessments
Is your child starting school soon? Are they shy, do they have difficulty making friends or following instructions? I am offering a short assessment to check all the main areas of speech, language and communication, to give you piece of mind that your child will have the best start in their new school. A short report with advice and recommendations that you can give to the new teacher will also be provided. If you would like to know more or to arrange an appointment at your home, please contact me.
I also offer support for children who are learning English as an additional language. I have wide ranging skills to support your child's English language skills due to my Speech Therapy experience combined with the fact I have worked directly in an international school here in Germany. Fun activities and games are the main way in which I develop children's English language skills, this ensures they stay engaged and get the most out of each session. I support children individually or in small groups.
