Happy Talk Speech and Language Therapists
Happy Talk works with children with speech, language and communication challenges. We provide a friendly, caring and personal service. Happy Talk is a small company, but we have a big heart. Each child sees just one Speech and Language therapist throughout their care. So, therapists and children build a good rapport.
We offer assessment, goal setting and therapy packages. Each element is individually designed for your child.

Parents want their children to be happy and confident. But what to do when your child’s communication skills are not developing as quickly as you expect? Speaking, listening and social skills enable children to build friendships, develop play skills, access learning and achieve academically. At Happy Talk speech and language therapy, we help children become successful communicators.
The challenges we help with
HappyTalk therapists are qualified speech and language therapists. Our therapists specialise in working with children. We have expertise in helping children with a variety of communication needs. Speak to us if your child has difficulties with:
- Speech sounds: speech is unclear: other people struggle to understand what your child says
- Stammering: speech is not fluent: there are repetitions, pauses and sometimes tension
- Attention and listening: reduced ability to pay attention and actively listen
- Understanding: difficulty making sense of what other people say: may struggle to follow spoken instructions
- Vocabulary: the amount and variety of words your child uses is limited
- Grammar: the sentences your child builds don’t match those of their peers
- Social communication: difficulty communicating with other people
- Autism: difficulty with social communication; sometimes also with speech and language
- Voice: your child’s voice is hoarse, rough, weak, has pitch breaks or sounds strained
- Dyspraxia: reduced muscular control and coordination of the muscles used for talking
