My son finds it hard to focus and with optima and especially Ziggy he holds his attention a lot longer than normal which helps progress.
We look forward to continuing to use optima!

Optima Speech Therapy provides an user friendly, engaging and quick way to access speech therapy. The online assessment was quick and easy. My four year old daughter engaged happily in the tasks and we received a programme in a short time frame.
The therapy tasks are easily completed with everyday materials in the home and my daughter finds them fun and looks forward to her 15 minutes practice each day.

We were so relieved
We were so relieved to get a quick and easy assessment done with Kate. Ziggy was a brilliant idea for our 7 year old to engage with. It was such an easy process from start to finish. We would definitely recommend Kate at Optima Speech Therapy.
Now we have no concerns about our son.
Thanks for all your help Kate.
