Small Talk Speech & Language Therapy in 2010

We've had a great year this year and I can't believe it has gone by so fast. I thought I'd re-cap some of our achievements this year. We:

  • launched the groups as a franchise opportunity
  • recruited franchisees both nationally and internationally
  • have written a comprehensive training course for franchisees to be delivered in person or long distance
  • taken part in a buddying scheme with staff and parents from a nursery and neighbouring pre-school
  • developed the signing in nurseries and pre-schools to two 6 weeks courses
  • Introduced stories with Jack
  • extended the groups to include school age children
  • have done lots of training with teachers, TAs, parents and carers
  • launched an independent ASD assessment service
  • started a blog as part of a social media marketing campaign which has a good monthly readership
  • set up a local group for independent SLTs for ASTLIP
  • were nominated for several awards & short-listed for a couple plus the groups were nominated for the What's on 4 Little ones awards
  • were extremely busy on the independent speech therapy side with consistent No 1 google rankings
  • developed and pilotted Teeny Talkers Training package
  • worked with lots of NHS therapists
  • started to put together an international bulletin for SLT/SLPs to be launched in January
  • appeared on the radio several times
  • had good local and regional press coverage
There's more that I cant recall right now and still things we didn't do that we wanted to but I'm proud of our achievements and I'm looking forwards to developing and extending next year. So here's to a fabulous 2011 for us all!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Libby, Franky, Helen, Nicky, Sumathi, Dee, Amy, Vanessa, Jennie and of course, Jack!! xx

  1. Dads have probably been thinking about going back to school and be able to

    either move up in your career, ask for a promotion and a raise or simply change

    careers completely.fathers and single fathers around the country have been

    taking advantage of scholarships for single fathers, scholarships for dads and

    other education grants for single dads. Learn more:

  2. Thanks Dan, As a single mum I know how hard it is to earn enough to keep the home/family and still have time to be there for the children. It's a juggling act and not one I'm always successful with (is anyone).
