Welcome To ChatterBug
ChatterBug specialises in speech and language therapy for children, working with playgroups, schools, community groups and families. Our dynamic social enterprise takes a flexible, innovative approach to communication difficulties, providing vital support for children, as well as parents and teachers.
We understand the challenges that communication problems can pose for an individual at home and at school. We’re also well aware that not all families are able to afford high quality therapy. That’s why our qualified team of speech and language therapists offer a full range of services to assess, diagnose and treat children from all walks of life.
Telehealth - Online Speech & Language Therapy For Children
We launched our Telehealth service to work closely with parents and children to make sure every child progresses, no matter what the external circumstances are. This has been a proven success with over 9,000 sessions successfully delivered since the first lockdown in March. With Telehealth, we can still deliver the same engaging and effective Speech Therapy sessions online, meaning your child can still take part even through any lockdown measures. Together, we can help boost your child’s confidence surrounding language and communication!
SLCN Training Courses
At ChatterBug, we have a range of in-house training courses and workshops that are developed by our SLT’s, who are qualified and experts in the field. Our training courses aim to develop the knowledge and understating of those working with children and young people with SLCN in the education setting providing the right support, and ongoing opportunities to develop and improve their skills.
Through our training, previous participants have demonstrated increased confidence in identifying, assessing and supporting pupils with SLCN. The training will also adapt and differentiate your teaching methods, allowing pupils to reach their full learning potential as well as making your classroom and learning environment more inclusive for pupils with SLCN.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our training courses are currently taking place online via Google Meets
Working With Schools
Giving every child the support they need is difficult in a busy school environment. Yet some children require a little extra support to progress to the next stage. ChatterBug helps schools across the UK create supportive communication environments, to ensure that your students receive the attention they deserve.
Whether you’re concerned about meeting your OFSTED goals or you need to train staff to help individual students, ChatterBug provides a flexible service shaped around the education sector.
Communication is central to everything we do. It affects who we are, how we learn, how we interact with other people at home, at school, and at work. Children with good speech, language and communication skills find it easier to learn in school and develop friendships. Children with communication difficulties struggle to express themselves and participate in daily life often feeling frustrated and experiencing poor self esteem. Speech and Language Therapists have specialist skills and will work closely with you and your child to breakdown barriers to communication.
