When your child is having difficulty expressing themselves, struggling with pronunciation, or finding reading and writing difficult, it can cause a huge amount of anxiety. You might even find their lashing out in frustration because they can’t express their thoughts, feelings, wants, and needs.
Worrying whether your child will fall behind in school or be bullied by other kids for their lisp or stutter; it’s no walk in the park. Of course, when a speech issue is compounded with a disability or developmental delay, things get even tougher.
At Kids First, you will meet experienced speech therapists who have been working exclusively with children for many years.
With expertise in all kinds of communication difficulties (such as speech sound, comprehension, expressive language, stuttering and reading/spelling problems) we are highly trained and can help.
Our speech pathologists are sensitive to the very real emotions you’re facing. They have the experience and insight to help you navigate this uncertain territory and see the road ahead. We’ll help to improve your child’s speech, literacy, and language through engaging, friendly sessions.
We are welcomed like family at Kids First. Staff take the time to know my name, offer me a cup of tea and help me in any way they can. Every team member I have ever met at Kids First has been friendly and kind to me and my child.
Everyone is really lovely. We often go in for a session with one therapist then bump into another in the hallway. They always stop to chat and have a quick check in. That really helps to build the bond between them and my child. The reception team are also great and are super responsive to any request.
Welcomed, accepted, respected, so much so that we have come to feel that we are part of one big extended Kids First family and it’s beautiful to be a part of something that is so positive and supportive.
The multidisciplinary team in one place was the thing that made life a lot easier for our family. I think the most important thing though is that everyone cared about my children.
Very professionally and we were walked through the process of what was going to happen and followed up after the sessions. The staff at Kids first were kind and compassionate to our requirements and the care they showed were not unnoticed, we really appreciate the time that was taken to help us .
We are treated like family. The team genuinely care, check in and make us feel Important.
