Meet our family of child-development experts
Hello & welcome. We are Polly & Daphne Chapman, a highly experienced clinical specialist speech and language therapist and a retired nurse, midwife, SENCo. specialising in child-development.
By bringing our different areas of child-development professional expertise together we hope to offer you articles that are informative, well-balanced and backed up by the real-life experience of experts in their field. We will also be inviting guest experts to join us along the way.
We both have a passion for promoting parental confidence & whole family well-being and our hope is that within our articles you will find knowledge but also kindness, empathy and support for your family’s unique journey.
Children with speech & language differences can reach their full potential for participation in all areas of their life with the right support and with better understanding of their needs. They can have fun & find their own special interests, build positive friendships & relationships, stay healthy & mentally well, enjoy play & learning and eventually work towards a career and an adult-life they can be proud of.
Look out for our first post coming very soon
