The services offered by Claire are:


Neuro-Developmental Therapy

Based on research by the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP) Chester, established in 1975 by Peter Blythe, a former senior lecturer in Applied Psychology (Education). Neuro-Developmental Delay desribes an interruption in a stage of early development which, without the presence of disease or damage, continues to affect specific aspects of a child’s performance as they mature.


Johansen Individualised Auditory Stimulation

It is auditory processing skills and efficiency – not just volume, that are significant to learning, understanding and communication. Johansen IAS is a sophisticated audiometric test and tailor-made CD listening programme developed by Dr Kjeld Johansen. It can benefit children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of speech or language difficulties including dyslexia and dyspraxia aswell as ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
