I'm Wendy, a busy mum of two and the Can-Do Practitioner for Glasgow and South Lanarkshire.
I first sought support from Can-Do when my little girl was just 18 months old. I was very concerned as she wasn’t babbling.
I am so grateful that I did! Fast forward 3 years and she has amazed us all with speech that is on par with her peers!
I genuinely believe she wouldn’t be where she is now if a friend hadn’t suggested I contact Joanne.
Can-Do enabled our family to deliver effective tailored speech therapy in our everyday lives.
It highlighted the fundamental precursors to speech which were roadblocks for my little girl and by focusing on them, we were able to help her move forward.
Although I still work in a primary school, I trained as a can do practitioner as I am passionate about helping parents of late talkers, parents who feel the way I did, and who want nothing more than to learn how best to support their child.
I am confident that through Can-Do I can help you to give your child the best chance of communicating to their full potential.
I offer 1-to-1 sessions in families’ own homes, at an alternative venue, or online if preferred.
We work out where your child is and put strategies in place to help their language develop.
An initial block of 6 hourly sessions is suggested but I am flexible to individual needs in terms of both content and timing. Even a couple of sessions allows us to complete the Can-Do screening together to see where your child is and give you appropriate strategies to try.
I can help with Makaton too.
These sessions give you not only access to Joanne’s expertise and material but also support from a mum with both professional and personal experience of working with, and being a parent to, neurotypical and neurodivergent children, and even more importantly a mum who has been there and understands!!
Dont hesitate to get in touch with any questions. I would love to help you support your child!
