I was referred to Anne's More Than Words speech therapy course for parents that have children with language and communication difficulty. Anne ran the course at Hairmyres hospital this course is amazing at helping families. My 3 year old wouldn't talk and daily life was difficult as he wouldn't tell you if he was hungry, tired or even if he was hurt, everything was a squeal. Anne has taught me ways to help my son and he is communicating a lot better.
When I started he would point or grunt and yesterday he said to his sister " upstairs ..., please" his speech is still limited, but with the skills Anne has taught us I'm confident he will progress nicely.
This course is so important to families like mine, without Anne's hard work, time and patience so many families would be struggling. This course isn't just about speech therapy, it's a way for families to communicate and in my opinion a lifeline. If there was more people like Anne doing these courses, so many more families would benefit. She has given me and my family so much help by giving us her time and teaching me valuable life skills. Thank you to Anne, you have changed our lives for the better.
