We are qualified/trained in many of the latest, evidence-based therapy techniques, including:
Spalding training for reading, writing and spelling
As a Spalding-trained speech pathologist, David offers 45 minute, weekly sessions to support children and adults with reading, writing and/or spelling difficulties as well as mainstream children who simply want the benefits of a teaching method that combines explicit instruction in phonemic awareness, systematic phonics, vocabulary development, text fluency, comprehension strategies and an appreciation of great writing. More detail on this service is provided here.
