Nothing to worry about

We understand it can be challenging to realise your child isn't communicating typically for their age. For some families there's uncertainty about what is 'normal' and you just want an answer from someone who knows this stuff.


When you book in a speech & language evaluation, we let you know, often from the first session, what's going on, and our action plan to support you.  

What to expect on your maiden voyage at Mermaid Speech

Happy Mother with her Child

Menu of Services

Communication is an essential part of daily life. Strong communication skills see us flourish in the social, academic, and professional realms. The opposite can see us floundering. Rather than drown in despair, we have the tools, skills, and know-how at Mermaid Speech to identify and support communication difficulties and differences.

We focus on:

  • understanding and expressing self

  • social communication

  • reading & writing

  • speech clarity

  • voice therapy

There are no 'stupid questions'

We believe words should be easy for everyone to understand. This is why we try to use Easy English as much as possible and our reports include an easy-to-read summary.


It's also why we are happy to answer any questions over the phone in a free discovery call.
