We believe that language is the absolute fundamental life skill that all children and young people need to be independent, to build relationships and to gain employment. We are committed to supporting our future generations achieve this, by providing a high quality professional and holistic service, which demonstrates measurable impact with the child and young person at the heart of our work. We pride ourselves on a service which goes beyond the pre-school and the primary years, into secondary school and post -16 settings.
Stepping Stones SaLT Services Ltd was founded in early 2018 by Deeba Akram, a highly specialist speech and language therapist. Our services include assessment, treatment and reports for children and young people aged 2-18 years, presenting with a broad range of developmental and acquired Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN’s). In addition, we are able to offer a range of strategic, solution focused services to support educational settings wanting to improve literacy and attainment, through a focus on innovative, whole school oral language approaches. These have been applied very successfully with primary, secondary and post-16 settings, and have supported schools improve their Ofsted ratings. Our services are responsive and work within CQC and Ofsted framework. Stepping Stones also specialises in communication disorders in bilingual children and young people.
