What do Small Talk Speech and Language Therapy Ltd do?
Small Talk Paediatric Speech & Language Therapists work independently and treat speech therapy patients privately. The Small Talk Speech Therapists only work with children with speech therapy requirements so they can offer a highly specialist speech & language therapy service. They work with children who have:
mild, moderate or severe learning difficulties
specific language impairment
specific difficulties in producing sounds
cleft lip and or palate
autism / social interaction difficulties
"The ability to communicate is central to all that we do, to who we are, how we learn and how we relate to others" (Ross, Leeds Metropolitan University, 2007)

Small Talk Speech and Language Therapy was set up by Libby Hill, Speech & Language Therapist, to bridge the ever-widening gap between the increasing number of children with communication problems and the shortfall within the NHS. We take speech & language therapy referrals from all over Staffordshire and some parts of Derbyshire...
