Abigail Lawton

Specialist Speech and Language Therapist

We are a bespoke speech and language therapy service based in Blackawton, Totnes but working across Devon and Cornwall. We work to develop functional communication skills with individuals who have limited communication and interaction.

We are highly passionate about enabling everyone to have a means of communication. We work with individuals and their support networks to develop new and improve existing communication and or interaction skills and to foster new skills to support the individual to be heard and have more power and autonomy over their own lives.

Much of the work we do is focused on using alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) systems to develop an individual’s functional communication and interaction skills. Either supporting the development of, or providing an alternative to verbal communication.

Our ethos is to place the individual at the centre of our work and establish realistic aims for therapeutic intervention with an individual and their support network.We have experience in working with both children and adults with a range of complex communication needs and associated learning disability.

Myself and my 3 1/2 year old son, met with Abi yesturday for the first time. She was fantastic and after the session I felt much more positive. She gave a lot of useful information and got George involved through different games. The session summary was emailed to us. It was very detailed and covered absolutely everything that we had discussed. We rebooked straight after the first session and we will be seeing Abi again in a fortnight. Would highly recommend.
