About us

Access to Communication is a highly-regarded professional service dedicated to improving the lives of those facing speech and language challenges. The practice is led by Abi, an experienced Speech and Language Therapist who has devoted her career to this essential field.

Our Approach

We are devoted to facilitating communication for all. We partner with individuals and their support networks to enhance existing interaction abilities, build new skills, and empower individuals to articulate themselves with autonomy.

Our work primarily involves the use of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) systems to improve an individual’s functional communication. We support the expansion of or provide alternatives to, verbal communication.

Our approach is person-centric, focusing on realistic therapeutic objectives aligned with the individual and their support network. Our experience spans working with children and adults with diverse, complex communication needs and associated learning disabilities.

"Our son was non verbal and is autistic and has just turned 7. After not having much luck with NHS speech and language we made the decision to try private. Abi was recommended and she is absolutely brilliant. We started working with Abi in July 2021 and nearly a year on our son is using an AAC system and has made an amazing amount of progress on his speech. We are impressed daily with the words he speaks. Abi puts together a plan for us to follow and works with us, James and school to help develop James’s speech at a pace that is achievable and realistic. We can not thank Abi and her team enough for helping James to use his words and communicate with everyone more effectively. James is less frustrated the more he communicates".
