I cannot praise Lesley highly enough. She is an excellent voice therapist. She's a kind and caring person.She really listens to you and then works out a plan of treatment with you. I actually looked forward to our weekly voice therapy sessions. For six months I've had little to no voice at all and after a few weeks with Lesley I've actually got my voice back. I really can't say thank you enough, it was so isolating not being able to speak. Thank You again Lesley. Jane. Sussex.
Lesley carried out a very thorough assessment of my son, which has proved invaluable both as evidence for his tribunal, as well as in helping us to find the right school for him. What I like about Lesley is that she doesn't just write a standard report and deliver it to you. Instead, she is prepared to talk her findings through, and give advice and support on what it means in practical terms. It can be a difficult and sometimes upsetting process to get your child assessed, and then understand what this might mean for them in the future. Lesley is a knowledgeable and compassionate ally in this journey. M.M East Sussex
Steph has really taken the time to get to know my daughter, identify her strengths and areas of weakness and help her to build upon both. Every lesson is full of fun and taught with real enthusiasm. As far as my daughter is concerned it doesn't feel like a lesson but unbeknown to her she is progressing very well. Steph also makes sure her lessons tie in with any school objectives and is happy for her results and things she has learnt about my daughter to be shared with her teachers to benefit her further. I cannot recommend her strongly enough. A.D. West Sussex
"Brilliant; Really helpful; Very Informative - I'm pleased I came....just some of the feedback from parents of children with communication needs. The parents listened to Lesley's explanation of the importance of understanding SLT needs when planning for secondary school. Lesley was presenting at Action-attainment's workshop on Secondary School transition.Lesley's real-life examples and experience helped several parents to understand why their child was struggling at school and how even subtle communication difficulties impact behaviour as well as access to education. With Lesley's help parents walked away with clear ideas on the actions they needed to take to help their child's attainment at school and in life. Sam Silver, Director, Action-attainment Richmond
I have had the pleasure of working with Lesley over the last few years while she has assisted children in my class. The support Lesley offers has been invaluable and I have always been delighted with the progress the boys have made while working with her. Lesley shares her expertise with us as teachers, offering practical strategies and techniques to support boys within the classroom. Likewise, she will tailor her sessions to reflect the topics and curriculum areas we are teaching.
The parents of the children Lesley works with are always extremely appreciative for her input and impressed with the results. The children thoroughly enjoy their one to one sessions and are particularly fond of her extensive collection of games and activities. Lesley takes time to develop supportive relationships with class teachers and parents which I believe is the key to enhancing the progress of the children.
Lesley’s passion, positive attitude and friendly manner are truly inspiring and I would wholeheartedly recommend her services to my colleagues and friends alike. Pre-prep Teacher Surrey
