For parents

“Frances worked with our daughter for nearly two years as a feeding and speech and language therapist. Throughout this time, she has always had a very friendly, positive, enthusiastic and professional approach to ourselves and our daughter.
We feel that Frances has a great understanding of our daughter’s special needs and also helped us to better understand many aspects of feeding mechanisms and issues our daughter was experiencing.
Frances is able to assess a child’s needs very thoroughly and we would not hesitate to recommend her to other families who require the help of a highly skilled speech and language therapist.”
— Kamila, mother of Olivia

“Thank you for the training yesterday - it was really helpful and we’re really delighted with all of the effort you are putting into Patrick’s communication. We think it is contributing to him being more content, which is a win for everyone!”

“Ms Johnstone is an amazing specialist. She’s been with us from the day we came back from the hospital after our baby had surgery. Not only was she very professional and amazing with our baby, she also supported and reassured me on every step of our baby’s recovery. She took time to explain and respond to all our questions and suggested a clear plan for our baby’s treatment. Ms Johnstone is an incredibly experienced speech and language therapist with a wealth of knowledge. She provided thorough and reassuring care and had a gentle, relaxed approach to my baby. We were lucky to have had her as our baby’s SLT as she helped us during the most difficult period of our lives.”
