My 4 year old daughter has attended speech therapy sessions with Marian for several months as her speech and pronunciation were quite delayed and with “big school” looming we were worried that nobody outside the family could understand her. Marian has worked so well with my daughter and put her at ease from the beginning . Her progress has been fantastic and has been commented on by everyone we know. I know without a doubt this is down to Marian and the way she has encouraged my daughter and worked so patiently with her, she built a great relationship with her from the start. She has also given us great guidance and support on how we can further help her at home. My daughter loves going to her sessions and it’s so great to see her have conversations now without people having to look to us for translation! I would recommend Marian without hesitation to anyone looking for a speech and language therapist for their child!
‘We first took our son to see Marian when he was 4 years old as he had some sound and articulation errors. We found Marian to be friendly, approachable and she made our son feel at ease. She engaged really well with him. His speech improved dramatically in a very short space of time. This would not have happened without Marian’s support. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending Marian’ ….. Marie
Our little boy attended Marian when he was 2 ½ years old. He had delayed speech and excessive drooling and was a fussy eater. Marion was fabulous from the minute we met her on his first assessment. She never once labelled him. She was very helpful as looked at every avenue why his speech might have been delayed and excessive drooling. Our little boy loved going back to Marian she did each session through play and made it fun for him. The work Marian did with our little boy was unbelievable he now well able to speak and drooling no longer a problem. She was very understanding as he used to get frustrated due to be unable to speak. She explained and spoke to preschool in regards to this so they could get a better understanding of him. Also due to the fussy eaten she designed a programme to overcome this I can safely say that he no longer a fussy eater he now eats everything. Family and friends cannot believe the change in our little boy. Marian played a massive role in this and we very thankful to her. She was also very supportive and encouraging through the whole experience. I stronger recommend her in the future.
After junior infants I noticed my son developed a problem with his speech. Adults found it difficult to understand him . When we ‘d go out he would speak once and if not understood he’d shy away. If he wanted to be understood , he would speak with only one word. He went into first class & the teacher suggested learning support as she felt he had a problem with English .
I knew then I had to do something and asked people for advice . Speech & language therapy was suggested so l got in touch with Marian. A brief history was taken over the phone & then we were given an appt for assessment .
We met with Marian who I have to say was wonderful . She identified the problem immediately and suggested a few weeks therapy to help him overcome it.
It was easy to see that Marian is used of dealing with children . Her sincerity won my son’s respect and co- operation immediately. She has a very kind & pleasant disposition & was extremely professional in her dealings with us.
My son recieved the therapy for few weeks with tremendous success . We took a break for a month & then had a review appointment to which we finished. My son learned how to manage his problem & that in turn has increased his confidence in speaking with people. His teacher has seen a huge difference in him.
I cannot thank Marian enough for all her help & the fantastic service she provides . I would highly recommend this service to anyone who feels they need assistance with speech & language for their child. 😀
