Attention Related Disorders
Attention is a skill that develops. We would not expect an 18 month old child to sit and watch a whole movie but by three years of age some children are certainly able to sit for much longer periods and longer movies!
Whilst some children present with specific diagnosed Attention Disorders e.g. ADD or ADHD some children have delayed development of attention because they have Language Disorders or Processing Delay. Either way, learning how to listen is extremely important. Development of strong attention and listening skill will be integrated into all therapy programmes provided by Justine.
Justine can also help provide a differential diagnosis and specialist intervention in this area.
I contacted Justine about my 2.5 year old after his nursery raised some concerns about his mouth regularly being open and excess dribbling. Justine took the time to thoroughly understand the issue and the flags that nursery had identified as well as a detailed background of my son's life to date. She then provided us with some very useful advice but concluded we wouldn't benefit from treatment at this stage. I really appreciated her friendly and pragmatic communication and felt reassured after speaking with her that I knew how to help my son. I appreciated the time she invested, especially given it didn't result in any specific work for her. Thank you!
Justine is an amazing therapist, my daughter has been lucky enough to see her in London weekly for Prompt therapy for the past 3 years. My daughters speech has improved so much as a result of her seeing Justine every week. I’m so grateful she gets to see Justine and can’t recommend her enough.
I would recommend working with Justine, she is very kind, very patient and has found the perfect way to make my child understand, thank you so much Justine.
You have been a magician for Tristan!
