About me

Everybody Talks is a private Speech and Language Therapy company based in Brixton, South London.

Established in 2013 after many years experience in the NHS, we provide the Speech and Language Therapy provision for schools across London and Kent as well as providing support to individual clients (London only) with a broad range of communication difficulties and their families.

We offer speech and language therapy for the management of disorders of speech, language and communication, including:

* Speech/ Articulation Disorders

* Language Delay/ Disorders
* Specific Language Impairment

* Please be aware, due to the primary nature of our business being providing school provision, we may not always have capacity to take on individual clients.

If a client approaches us who has needs outside of our range of expertise, we will usually be able to help you find another therapist or company who can help them.

Further information

Me and my team prefer to conduct assessments and therapy for children in their home as this is where their communication is most important for them. Working with the children in their home means they feel more comfortable in familiar surroundings, and this helps the skills they learn in therapy to generalise to their primary communication environments.

We see parents as an integral part of the therapy process. The models we follow focus on providing parents with the skills to carryover therapy on a daily basis. Parents are able, with our support, to help their children gain new skills faster.

As such, most of the therapies we deliver will have some aspect of modelling to parents and then watching parents deliver therapy themselves (usually with the help of a recording of the interaction) and then feedback about that interaction.

If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you may have a pre-existing medical condition you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
