Wider Community Support

Thrive SLT is passionate about supporting ALL children to achieve their potential. We want to involve whole communities in developing awareness of, and supporting, childrens’ Speech Language and Communication Needs (SLCN).

Using our extensive practical and theoretical knowledge, Thrive SLT offers services to workforces/businesses/staff to support the communication of children they encounter at home & work.

You may be a business (e.g. retail outlet, restaurant, GP practice, toddler group) wishing to improve your employees understanding of, and interaction with, people with SLCN e.g. stammering, autism spectrum disorder, speech anxiety. Or wishing to improve people with SLCN’s access to your publications (e.g. menu’s, information sheets). Improving customer service will result in increased customer satisfaction.

You may wish to increase staff retention and satisfaction by supporting your staff as parents in their home environment.  Valuing your employees home life and helping them to better understand their childrens’ communication development could reduce anxiety and improve well-being for all concerned.
