Roughly how much does private speech therapy cost in central London?

Can anyone recommend a private speech therapist in central London?

My 3yr old daughter has a significant stammer and difficulty getting her words out, and very low self confidence.My NHS GP forgot to make the referral so we are still waiting on square one.

I'm trying to remain positive but I got so upset yesterday when a little girl in the park had a long conversion with my DD, then asked DD if she could even speak English! When my DD replied "yes,Eng...eng...eng...eng-ger-lish" the little girl laughed and made fun of her.

Don't know about central but we pay £65 a fortnight in zone 3. The first appointment is double because of the need to do an assessment.

Again Zone 3 - £70 an hour

Hi between £60-80 is not unusual. Always make sure anyone you use is registered with the HCPC .http://www.hcpc-uk.co.uk/

I would make sure they have good experience with children/stammering rather than a general SALT who will just take any work he/she can get!

Some dysfluency is common at this age, but it is wise to be seen by a SLT.

Also you should be able to self refer to your locAL NHS SLT, mentioning how upset your daughter is would place her further up any waiting list (IME).
