Ruth Milburn - Speech Therapist

I am Ruth Milburn, a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist with significant experience working within several NHS Trusts both in London and Yorkshire. I work with parents and carers to support pre-school and school aged children with a range of Speech, Language and Communication needs.

I  tailor therapy to the individual needs of the child and family to ensure that therapy is functional and fun. This includes working in the child’s home, nursery and a clinic environment in order to ensure that the child is consistently supported in all settings.

I am an expert in the support and development of the foundation stones for language, learning, attention, listening, play and social communication.

Where we work

We are based in South Yorkshire and support children from the South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire areas, whether at your home, nursery, school or at our clinic.

 We support children with:

  • Language Delay (e.g. difficulties learning first words, joining words or forming sentences)
  • Language Disorder 
  • Speech Sound Difficulties (e.g. difficulties with pronunciation)
  • Developmental Verbal Dyspraxia
  •  Fluency difficulties such as a stammer or stutter

Selection of therapy approaches include:
