Learn to Communicate Speech Therapy


Learn to Communicate provides speech and language therapy for children and young people across Sheffield, South Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Lead speech therapist Victoria is passionate about supporting children and young people to develop their communication skills and to empower parents and school staff to support a child's development.

Learn to Communicate works with children and young people from 12 months old to 25 years. This includes children who are late talkers, and those with difficulties with speech clarity, stammering, difficulties explaining themselves, and difficulties understanding.  We work with autistic young people and others with difficulties with social skills, making friends etc. Victoria is a specialist in supporting children with challenging behaviour, trauma and social, emotional or mental health difficulties. Learn to communicate also offers sleep workshops and 1:1 support for parents of children with sleeping difficulties.

We are happy to give advice/initial telephone or email consultation for free. One off and regular sessions for schools and nurseries are also available as well as staff training.
