Can anyone recommend good private OT and SALT (ABA friendly) in S-W London? May be someone who will visit at home? Have a good SALT in Central London, but travelling there and back is just too much for LO. Thanks a lot!!!!

Hi, I'm in London and looking for a good private salt (for a child with GDD on unknown cause) - could you let me know who you see centrally?

I know you're asking for a private OT and SALT but FYI the Children's Centre in Siward Road, SW18 has a fantastic SALT - Jill Gisby and the OT - Heather Greenaway is also fantastic. Not sure if they also do private consultations.

Hi Sophj100, I will give it a try! But I know in our borough, if they are doing public services, they can't do private. Thanks for recommendations!!

Hi AAmommy. Sorry for a late reply. Today I am off so bit more relaxed. Yes , I can highly recommend Melissa S. from westlondonchildrensot. She is owner and very gifted Ot. She has incredible gift in connecting with children and understanding them and taking the best out of each individual. I have seen many many Ot and salt but she is one of the best. She is not salt but she has incredible team behind her and a lovely studio. She does home visits, school visits or you can go to her clinic.
I am praising her so much - she is not my friend but I have seen her changing children in such a positive way and I have gone through lots of OT's , SALT's and I know fantastic ABA therapist if you need more info!
With Kiki's I don't have personal experience but through my friend- her son is SN , she can't praise them enough.
Hope that helps. Let me know how did you find any of them please.

Just to correct myself, she is not salt but she has salts in her team.

Hi burstingbaboon, thanks a lot!!!!! I will definitely get in touch with her!!! I really need good OT!!! Some of our sensory issues are really too much at times. Do you mean that you know good ABA therapist???? Can you pm me details?? Thanks a lot for everything!!!!!!

That ok . I am so happy to help. Melissa has got vast knowledge in sensory processing disorder.
I know her work very well and I have seen little gorgeous girl going from high sensory seeking child to a much calmer child who could learn.
I know ABA therapist. Lady is as well fantastic, old school but very professional and understanding.
I know as well a bit about SPD - it's part of my job , that's how I know these two ladies.
Important thing is that both therapist listen to you but even more that your little angel connects with therapist. Once there is trust there will be progress.
Do you mind telling me more about sensory issues, maybe I can give you few tips?
Good luck and I hope that I helped you.
Later on I will post few more things ( books, websites....) just let me know or pm me....
