I was really worried about Sam’s speech. No one could understand him when he started nursery, which was when I decided to go to speech therapy. Emer reassured me and explained how children develop speech and why some children have difficulties. We worked on a programme together and I am so happy to say that Sam started school a confident and chatty boy and is understood by everyone. Thank you so much. Speech Therapy really did change his life!!
Really good to have something to do to improve my voice myself. By doing what you showed me it has really improved. I can now keep my voice going without losing it, use the telephone, and even shout. I can sing again without the sudden tightness in my throat.
I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for all the help and support you gave Charlotte and us. You have transformed our family as we now understand Charlotte and we no longer have those frustrating moments where we all look at each other just not knowing what she wants. You were a great find and I would definitely recommend you to any other parent who is concerned about their child’s speech and language development.
Marianne, I wanted to say thank you for your help. You supported me through a very difficult period so I never lost hope. I would not be back at work now if it wasn’t for the work we did. Thank you so much.
Emer has helped us improve our 3 year old girl’s language skills. Before seeing Emer we felt very lost as we didn’t know how to help Rebecca. She couldn’t understand simple questions and found playing with other children difficult. Emer worked with us over an intensive period and gave us lots of strategies to help develop attention and listening skills and helped us develop Rebecca’s language through play. We now feel so much more confident and knowledgeable in how to help our daughter. Emer’s passion to help Rebecca and her support and advice to us has been invaluable.
Thank you so much, Marianne, for running the voice care sessions with the trainee teachers. They have told me how useful they thought the lecture, especially the tips you gave them on how to ensure they protect their voices. The only criticism was that they wanted the session to be longer! They are going to be delighted to get the additional session. Thanks for this help, it is much appreciated.
The technique you showed me helped me maintain my voice and was really very helpful. Voice therapy has made me conscious of habits I didn’t know I had. Simple things really, but they have made a big difference. I was worried I might lose my voice again, but I have been fine.
Marianne, you are a precious gift. You are sensitive to needs of others and passionate about helping people. You set me goals every week and the belief that it could be attained. When my journey seemed impossible to reach you did not give up on me. You said stay focused on your goal and remember every step will bring you a little bit closer. You showed me to believe in myself and I would find the strength I never knew I had. Now I am able to have a conversation with my family and friends. You made me one happy lady with a great big happy smile. My family and I say a big thank you.
