Structured, reliable support without hefty costs
The cost of special therapy and support for children with extra needs or learning difficulties can be staggering. Learning Orchard Membership costs less than a single good meal a month, and is a reliable, secure place for you to feel heard, included and to share safely - and a forum in which you can make sure you maximise any other therapy and your own support for your child.
An inclusive, safe, private place for parents to
share, feel heard and find a way forward
A place to feel included
Finding a way forward with children who have special needs is often exceptionally challenging.
As a parent and /or carer of a child with communication difficulties, sharing the challenges with others in a similar place often helps.
A safe place to share
Margi's Learning Orchard is a safe, supportive space for parents and carers to share, support and learn from each other without judgment or pressure. Share ideas, release fears, and brainstorm the best ways to meet you and your child's needs with Margi.
A private place to feel heard
Members are always welcome to send Margi personal requests for training and recommendations.
When you need tips and tools on speech, language and communication, the Learning Orchard is a growing trove of article topics and webinar workshops.
What members get:
Direct, timely access to Margi
Sometimes you need a group discussion, but sometimes you need to share your worries and ideas with a trusted supporter.
I may not always have the answer! but I will find answers for you or will know someone who can give them to you - and if necessary can draw them into our discussions or refer you to them if you prefer.
Margi is available to give guidance to parents on the private forum, by phone and on Zoom.
Personalised Training & Support
What if you just want to check on how you're handling certain aspects of your child's treatment at home? Or you have a question about the treatment plan your therapist recommended? What if you don't know whether you're doing the practice activities your Speech Therapist recommended correctly?
Don't worry! You can ask all your questions in the forum, on the Zoom calls, and get training on tools or topics that will help support your children's growth and development.
Fortnightly Online Community Gatherings
Specially for parents in the membership group, and guided by your needs, this is a fortnightly gathering to provide support, get questions answered, and share progress updates with each other.
Being connected to other parents with the same ethos and needs is invaluable in this journey you're on.
I'd like to give about ten minutes to you as well, in talking about a a different topic in each meeting. Here are the first few:
Why is breathing important for speech?
How to fit speech and language practice into daily life
Foods and eating to help a child’s speech
Structured, accessible support without hefty costs
Learning Orchard Monthly Membership
Private invitation to online community circles
Private invitations to expert interviews
