"Amazed at the progress our daughter has made"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Children's speech and language therapy

(as a parent/guardian),

We initially saw Julie Spencer who was extremely caring and helpful with our situation and arranged for herself and Leanne Musgrave to do a home visit. This seemed entirely the right thing for our daughter as she gets extremely stressed in a medical centre environment.

Both Julie and Leanne were very understanding and genuinely cared about our daughter’s situation. We are very grateful for their ongoing help. Leanne arranged for Julie Roberts, a speech therapy assistant, to visit our daughter and begin some intensive interaction sessions in our home.

We have so far had three sessions with Julie and are very pleased and somewhat amazed at the progress our daughter has made. We still feel she has a long way to go, we cannot emphasize enough how valuable and helpful these home sessions are to us and our daughter and we are more grateful than words can say that we have been able to access this support.

We hope our daughter continues to make progress and that we continue to receive these invaluable visits and support from Julie and Leanne.

Response from Emma Dickens, Customer Engagement Manager, Integrated Children's Services, Locala Community Partnerships CIC


Firstly, thank you for leaving this lovely feedback for our Children's Speech and Language Team. I am delighted that they have had such a positive impact and that you and your family are getting just the support you need. It is great when we are able to share such positive feedback with our teams and they can hear about the impact they are having.

I must however also apologise that it has taken a couple of weeks for us to respond. For some reason your posting got missed - we have however now shared it with Julie and Leanne and the rest of the team. I am sorry that we didn't so this sooner.

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

Very best wishes
