"a credit to the Home Talk team"

About: Mansfield Woodhouse Children's Centre

(as a parent/guardian),


My son was a very reluctant speaker and only liked to use his own language to communicate. Sarah has been fantastic with him and won him over within two minutes. Every week he ran to the door to greet her and see what she had brought in her bag of tricks this week.

Through play, my son's confidence and speech has improved. He wants to try and say and learn new words, and I have so many ideas on how to help him and encourage him. We have both really enjoyed the sessions and now look forward to our weekly classes we have been invited to.

A brilliant service, but the true star is Sarah. She is a credit to the Home Talk team. Thank you so much.

It is lovely to hear how much your son has benfitted by Sarah's weekly visits and how this has now improved his speech and languge development.
