The ability to make sense of what one hears is key to maintaining communication integrity. There are certain impairments, eg. hearing impairment that affect auditory processing abilities. Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) can also co-occur with other conditions such as, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Knowing where a sound came from (localising sound)
Remembering spoken instructions, particularly if there are multiple steps
Understanding what people say, especially in a loud place or if more than one person is talking
We offer face-to-face speech therapy sessions at one of 2 locations in Nairobi, so if this is accessible for you, we would love to support you in this way. Before any sessions commence, we would need to book your child in for an initial consultation.
Telehealth can be a viable option for children, who for whatever reason cannot access face-to-face sessions. We run successful online sessions (telehealth) for children of different ages and presenting with different communication difficulties. Before any sessions commence, we would need to book your child in for an initial consultation.
No, you don’t. Any parent concerned with the progress of their child or any adult with concerns about their communication skills can self-refer themselves to our services. We do however work on appointments only. To request a call click here.

Yes. A number of our clients have personal/corporate insurance covers, which cover speech therapy services. We have arrangements with a select insurance providers, with their clients not expected to pay during any visits. Clients who have insurance covers that we don’t support are required to pay beforehand for any services rendered and seek reimbursement from their insurance (we assist with filling Claims forms).
Our office is open from 7.30am – 5pm Monday to Friday and Saturdays from 7.30am – 3.30pm. Our therapists are available for appointments during those times. Telesessions can be arranged outside of these hours.
Individual therapy sessions are 40 minutes in length. Before one commences therapy, an initial consultation (approx. 1 hour) is conducted.
Depending on the areas of need and severity, we may recommend up to 2 sessions per week. From experience, we have also found twice weekly sessions to be more effective. More intensive sessions can also be arranged. Watch my video on, ‘3 Ways to Make the Most Out of Your Child’s Speech Therapy Sessions.’
Therapy length varies from one child to another. As therapy is individualised to each child’s needs and children progress at different rates, it is difficult to quantify the number of sessions your child will require. Parents can however accelerate progress by following their therapist’s guidelines and ensuring consistent practice of targeted areas is undertaken at home.
