“My seven year old daughter had been experiencing communication issues with her peers, lacked confidence and was becoming withdrawn. She also suffered with some speech difficulties. She has attended [ARC] over the last year and the improvement in her has been nothing short of amazing. [Our therapist’s] personal devotion, through speech therapy, sentence construction, recitations and video recording has changed my shy, bashful little girl into a self confident, eloquent young lady. I would highly recommend ARC Speech and Language Centre; [our therapist] is an absolute credit to her profession.”
“My son has a severe speech impairment. He’s in preschool and his teachers and classmates find it very hard to understand him. He and I started seeing [our therapist] about four months ago and it has been brilliant. Firstly she was able to explain exactly where his speech was breaking down. Each week she gives us a small block of work to do. As a parent it is very reassuring to see weekly progress and to know that these blocks of progress are building towards clear speech. As for my son, he loves going [to ARC] and wonders what new games she’ll play with him each week! I’m delighted to have found [our therapist] and I feel my son is getting the best help he can get. I would recommend ARC without hesitation.”
