Speech4All - Speech and Language Therapy, Auckland

Our daughter has high needs, particularly verbal communication. Sam started working with her one-on-one in 2013, as we were struggling with continuity of therapists in the public system. In that time they have built a strong relationship, and our daughter's confidence in exploring speech and sounds has grown exponentially. Sam is so patient, yet firm, and uses a great array of games and exercises that are so engaging. We are delighted with the results and will happily continue therapy with Sam (and Speech4all) through our daughter's schooling.

Supervision with Samantha McGillivray has been extremely beneficial to my development as a clinican. Samantha is approachable and always available for open discussions about difficult case studies and provides valuable insight to support my learning. Sam has also been there to provide a third party perspective and another point of view for working within team dynamics and other difficulties that as a new graduate I have not had experience in. I find Sam an open and knowledgeable supervisor and I am grateful for all the support she has given me over the last year.

I approached Samantha at Speech4all because our son Ollie needed some help with improving the clarity of his speech and his pronunciation of words. Samantha really helped Ollie by meeting with him for half an hour sessions once a week (in blocks) and by working on different exercises, using games and providing a little homework pleasing results were achieved. Many people commented on how much more they could understand him and his writing at school and reading age improved quite considerably over a short space of time. Ollie really loved Samantha's visits and would definitely rank them as one of the highlights of his week. They got along very well and I really appreciated the fact she came to us, as a busy family of five that certainly made my life easier.
