All About Sound Talk
Sound Talk is an Independent Speech and Language Therapy service established in 2014 by Rachael Tuckley, Specialist Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist.
We are passionate about helping children to communicate because we know the impact that timely and effective Speech and Language Therapy has on a child’s life.
Sound Talk offers specialist assessment and therapy for children age 11 and under with a range of speech, language and communication needs.
Appointments can take place at your home or your child's school/nursery.
