At SOS Therapy and Learning Centre we recognise that each client has an individual learning style, which needs to be respected and supported. Children learn best when they are in a positive environment that is fun, nurturing, safe and allows them to maintain a calm and alert level of arousal in order to learn.
SOS Therapy and Learning Centre provides speech pathology services using movement and play based learning. We are a child and family centred practice, and believe in supporting parents with information, resources, advice and techniques to enable them to assist and encourage their child’s development at home.
