She is experienced in providing therapy for language delays, speech sound delays, oro motor skills difficulties and communication impairments.

My family and I have found Kirsty to be a great addition to our child’s therapy team.  Kirsty has helped us with signposting for further services and has been a great support beyond therapy.
