"Lucy Magrin, Speech Therapist, is very professional, patient and importantly makes the sessions fun, and Finlay really enjoys going. Lucy gives me clear instructions on how I can support Finlay at home and there is also email and telephone support when we don’t have an appointment. Lucy was instrumental in getting speech therapy in Finlay's school, I can't recommend her enough!"
