“COMMUNICATION IS NOT A THING IT'S EVERYTHING ”
''Yiota is an excellent person and a wonderful professional. As a professional, she is not afraid to try all the techniques that will bring the desired result.- that is to communicate!
My son is 4 years old and still doesn't speak , however since he started with her he can communicate with us and his preschool staff using Makaton signs and has developed shared attention; Something that he wasn't able to do before. She is kind, calm and very patient.'' February 2023
My Childs SLT is a service that puts you and your child first. I aim to provide a bespoke service that meets your child’s individual needs and support them to access their environment to their full potential. My approach is holistic and collaborative, involving all communication partners in the child’s communication journey. I will always listen to the parents’ concerns and support them in their child’s journey together.
