Words from Parents and Teachers
"Our son suffered from some nasal speech difficulties following several ear infections. Julia had a number of sessions with him both at home and at school which resulted in markedly improved speech and increased confidence. Julia was patient, caring and extremely engaging, and our son felt immediately at ease in her company, especially when she used Star Wars toys in the first session! The combination of one-to-one interaction and home-based follow-up activities ensured that our son's challenges were overcome quickly and with no disruption to his daily life. He still talks about Julia several months later!" L. Simpson
"My son has made huge progress with his speech working with Julia. She is flexible, working both at home and in his nursery setting, patient and makes learning fun. She catered each session to his specific needs and focused on what motivates him. I would recommend her without reservation" Mum of A.
"My daughter warmed to Julia instantly - her approach with children is wonderful. My daughter really enjoyed her sessions which encompassed various activities and techniques all of which were pitched at exactly the right level. The feedback we received from Julia was really insightful and helpful." Mother of C
"My daughter has made a real improvement in her speaking since starting her sessions with Julia Bourne. She is very comfortable with her and enjoys the sessions. I was getting very anxious that her speaking would not improve, especially as she was due to start pre school and so we are very happy that we have gone ahead with the sessions. I would definitely recommend Julia" EM
"Julia is an excellent speech therapist and I would highly recommend her. She is professional and knowledgeable, whilst being sensitive to each child's needs. She encourages strong communication with parents and teachers, which is key in supporting the child and improving their area of need" Mrs AR, Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator
