Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of Speech and Language Therapy?
Speech and Language Therapists have received highly specialist training in all aspects of communication development. They are able to offer you specialist advice and they are qualified in making assessments and in supporting children and young people with all forms of communication needs.
Why choose an Independent Therapist?
There is no difference in the training or qualifications of an independent therapist and an NHS therapist. At Playcubs we may be able to see your child/young person sooner and more frequently than an NHS therapist. We also have more flexibility in the therapy we can offer.
Do I need a referral?
No, you can refer your child to Playcubs yourself. Contact us for a free 15 minute telephone consultation.
Where does Therapy take place?
Assessment and therapy sessions take place virtually or at your home. Travel expenses may apply.
Sometimes assessments and therapy can be arranged in your child’s/young person’s education setting.
How many sessions will my child/young person need and how long will they last?
This will depend on your child/young person’s individual needs, the nature of their communication difficulty and response to therapy.
We offer ongoing therapy sessions with regular review of progress.
A typical therapy session lasts 45 minutes. Most of this time will be spent working directly with your child/young person but will include some time to discuss progress and new activities to focus on.
You are free to withdraw from therapy at any time.
