Speak Freely is an Independent Speech & Language Therapy Service based in

Watford, Herts.

Speak Freely provides a friendly, professional service, and recognises the unique needs of each individual in order to enhance communication skills.

Speech and Language Difficulties are now so common that as many as 2-3 children in every classroom struggle to communicate (information from ICAN)​. It is therefore more important than ever to address these difficulties early on and help children since communication is vital for all areas of learning and social interaction.

Assessment, advice and therapy can be provided for children and adults presenting with a wide range of communication difficulties, including the following:

At Speak Freely we seek to develop every individual's communication skills to enhance confidence, independence and enable him/her to reach their full potential.

  • speech sound difficulties/unclear talking
  • dyspraxia/apraxia
  • delayed language development
  • language disorder
  • stammering/dysfluency
  • voice problems (e.g. vocal nodules)
  • problems understanding language/receptive language difficulties
  • selective mutism
  • listening and attention difficulties (ADD/ADHD)
  • social communication difficulties
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Therapy with children aims to be fun to motivate and interest the child. As one child commented: "I didn't know speech therapy would be this much fun! I love playing all the games and I'm learning to say my tricky sounds at the same time!  I can't wait til next week!"
