"I now have a calmer, happier toddler"

About: Children & younger people's services / Nottinghamshire Children and Families Partnership: Speech and Language Therapy

(as a service user),

We underwent the “Home Talk” programme with Hazel due to my toddlers language delay. I can honestly say it transformed our family. It is challenging to implement the method into your everyday life, but the results are well worth the effort and the method really worked for us.

The team were completely supportive and I feel if we needed support in the future they would provide it. Hazel herself had a natural gift when interacting with my son and he was so engaged and enthusiastic during her visits he would shout “Hazel’s coming” whenever the doorbell rang after a couple of sessions. I cannot praise her enough.

The method worked for us and I now have a calmer, happier toddler that I can understand. Put the hard work in and you can get the desired results!  


Response from Jane Young, Service Manager: Speech and Language Therapy, Nottinghamshire Children and Families Partnership, Local Partnerships

Thank you so much for letting us know about this. I am so pleased that your son is doing well. Hazel is amazing - she has put a lot of her own time, effort energy and enthusiasm into developing her skills and knowledge in supporting children's speech, language and communication. We are very lucky to have her.

Please do keep in touch with us and let us know if we can be of any further help. There are many sessions at our Children's Centres to help you support your child's language development. I am sure your Hazel will be able to advise you if you want more information.
