OUR SPEECH & LANGUAGE SESSIONS
We provide group sessions and one to one sessions
Monthly speech and language sessions take place at our Centre and need to be booked in advance. We currently have three independent therapists running group sessions and one to one sessions catering for up to 50 children and young people with Down syndrome. We also have a therapist who specialises in oral motor and feeding.

Lauren is a Highly Specialist Speech and Language Therapist, who works privately and within the NHS; she is also an associate of Trinity College London. Her experiences within Speech and Language Therapy have allowed her to work extensively with children who have Down syndrome, Autism and a range of other communication difficulties. Laurens's personal experiences have seen her overcome both disability and a communication disorder, meaning she is passionate about equipping individuals with skills to aid or enhance communication and participation. Over the years she has trained hundreds of parents and professionals in understanding communication in order to support and develop the communication abilities of the individuals they work with.
