Grace Nolan founded SpeechWorks with the intention of creating a practice that would combine the highest quality of evidence-based therapy along with a caring and nurturing approach. Grace’s practice follows the philosophy that therapy is most successful when using a holistic based approach. This involves combining a variety of therapeutic approaches to treat the individual as a whole, not as individual parts. Grace believes that this can be most effectively done in a client’s home or school where generalisation of skills can best occur.
