ABOUT

We believe good communication is a vital ingredient to a happy and successful life.

Our services aim to help people develop great speech-language and communication skills to enable learning, independence and well-being.

 

Communicate Great is an independent speech and language therapy service

Who do Communicate Great work with?

Over 1 million children and young people in the UK have a long-term speech, language or communication need. That’s 2-3 in every classroom (The Communication Trust 2016). Early identification and therapy can help people overcome these difficulties, gain confidence and reach their potential.

Any person can have a speech, language or communication difficulty but some diagnoses place a person at great risk:

  • Epilepsy

  • Hearing Impairment

  • Language Delay or Disorder

  • Learning Disabilities

  • Attention and Listening

  • Speech Sound Development

  • Understanding of Language

  • Use of Language

  • Social Communication and interaction

  • Verbal reasoning

  • Emotional Literacy and Regulation

  • Fluency
