Speech & Language Therapy

C-19 statement

As of April, I am able to offer assessment and therapy sessions via Zoom or Skype. Using online platforms is a great way for your child to continue to receive Speech and Language Therapy and also support parents and carers. Please contact me via email or telephone to further discuss how this can work for you and your child. Contact details at the foot of this page.



Difficulties with speech, language and communication can impact on so many areas of a person’s  life; developing and maintaining friendships, coping in unfamiliar or pressurised situations, learning, day to day routines, self-esteem etc. Speech and Language Therapy can help by working directly on identified difficulties as well as problem solving situations and advising and educating others on how to best support that individual.

My name is Rebecca Ford and I am highly experienced Speech and Language Therapist with over 18 years experience working with children, young people and adults with speech, language and communication difficulties.

With children and young people I can help with:

  • Social communication (including Autism)
  • Speech delay/disorder
  • Verbal dyspraxia
  • Language delay/disorder (including Developmental Language Disorders)
  • Word finding and general vocabulary development
  • Auditory memory
  • Attention and listening
  • Developing non-verbal communication


With adults I can help with:

  • Accent modification
  • Articulation
  • Social communication difficulties (social cognition) and social anxiety using the Social Thinking ™ Programme


All new clients will need an assessment so I can identify their areas of need. After this, we can decide on next steps; this could be regular weekly or fortnightly therapy, monitoring and reviews (for example every 3 months) or one-off advice.

I aim to make therapy fun, functional and motivating so I can help my clients reach their communication potential.

Appointments are available at The Broad Street Practice on alternate Saturday mornings.
