"Your class has given him confidence and developed his speech in such a fun and enjoyable way, it really has been remarkable." Parent of a child who attended the Early Years Speech Group 2016-2017.
"When he first started at Cardinal Road, he ran his words together and couldn't say many of the letter sounds. He is now separating words and his letter sounds are correct . He can look at any word and sound it out correctly. He was also dropping letters at the end of words and now he says the full word. The improvement in his speaking has been incredible. The change in S's confidence is significant. I think this was the most amazing part to watch grow over the year. He wouldn't talk to people and was happier playing by himself than with other kids. He would withdraw from conversations if people didn't understand him immediately. Now, he is willing to try and listens to people as they ask him to repeat or correct his speech. He will speak in front of his class now and he also answers questions in class. He asks other kids to play with him as well as joining in. He is comfortable with who he is and doesn't let his speech get in his way anymore." Parent of a child who attended the Early Years Speech Group 2016-2017.
"At the start of the year I couldn't understand one word. Now I can understand her much better." Parent of a child who attended the Early Years Speech Group 2016-2017.
"Most people can now understand him better. L has got a lot more confidence now and speaks on the phone and has the confidence to order food and drink at the Hungry Horse when we go. L loves Rainbow Class and always gets excited to go in. I'm pleased that L got a place and it was well worth it." Parent of a child who attended the Early Years Group 2016-2017.
