Testimonials

Liz was absolutely fantastic with my two year old son who had speech delay due to glue ear and needing grommets. She created materials that would engage with him at his age and help him communicate and made it fun. She patiently assessed him and gave me some great and clear tips that i could continue myself at home with him.

I had the pleasure of working with the very talented Liz over the last year with a tricky client group. She was very creative, innovative and enthusiastic about giving children a voice.
