Testimonials

We first contacted Caint as we had concerns regarding Tommy’s speech. He was attending HSE clinic but his therapist went out on maternity leave and there was nobody to cover her appointments. Tommy was due to start school in a few months so we wanted to do as much as possible to help him improve. We heard about Caint from a friend and then saw some adverts on Facebook and also looked up the website. We explained our situation over the phone and from there we were put in touch with a therapist. All reports regarding Tommy were mailed on so therapist could be prepared for our first meeting so from there an action plan was put in place. Our son loved going there he always felt like he was going to his friends house. Each week he learned something new and loved telling family and friends about it so each week we saw his confidence growing. We loved the personal approach in Caint. Our therapist would often remember personal things in relation to Tommy e.g. his sister or brother or favourite cartoon which made Tommy feel great about being there while in turning making him want to do his best for Kirsten.
I contacted Caint because I wanted to get prompt attention for Daniel. I found Caint on the Speech Therapy Association of Ireland website. Caint helped by assisting Daniel in a relaxed and friendly environment and also provided me with the tools to help him on a day to day basis. The difference with Caint was that Daniel got individual attention on a day and time that suited us. Caint was a lovely place and Daniel felt at home in it, it didn’t feel clinical.
I first came to CAINT Therapy Services as my family and I wanted help and answers. Catherine talked us through our options step by step, enabling us to make informed decisions that would provide us with answers and recommendations, that would benefit my children both at home and in school. I found the multi-disciplinary approach brilliant as I know my children were assessed from a variety of specialist opinions. The team here are friendly, informative, knowledgeable and provide fantastic customer care and service.
Both my children attend regularly for Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy. My children love coming here as they feel safe and have lots of fun during their sessions. They both look forward to them weekly. I am included in any discussions and decisions involving my children which helps me understand what CAINT and me, as a parent, are aiming for and working together as a team to improve everyday life for them. The change I have seen has been fantastic and I couldn’t recommend Tanya and Catherine enough.
My son was having difficulty sounding out his “k” and “g” words and I called the Kildare team and was notified of an office in Carlow. They accommodated his first assessment and appointments thereafter in a short space of time. Edel, the speech therapist, had such a great was of helping Louie and had a very relaxed, friendly and fun approach to learning. Edel never made Louie feel embarrassed or conscious in any way and always treated him so well and he thoroughly enjoys the sessions. Edel instilled confidence in Louie and gave him the skills to help him between sessions. I could relax during the session as Louie interacted so well with Edel. I could see an improvement every week. Best decision we ever made.
Joe was recommended for assessment by his primary school teacher as he was not grasping the phonic sounds as well as she had hoped. She recommended Caint because he would be seen straight away, and the public system has a waiting list. The same week Joe had an appointment with Edel and was assessed. All avenues were looked at to ensure that it was a language disorder he had. He has seen the same therapist every two weeks which I find helpful to Joe in keeping him comfortable and on the same track in his learning rather than seeing different therapists each time. Joe actually looks forward to and enjoys his time here. This service is also very accommodating with appointments and seem to work around you rather than themselves. I would highly recommend this service to anyone seeking help in this area.
I contacted Caint because my daughter was having trouble with her speech and was becoming frustrated. I Googled speech therapy in Carlow and found Caint Speech Therapy. When I contacted Caint they were more than helpful and listened to what my concerns with my daughter were. I had an appointment the following week for an assessment with my daughter. My daughter was nervous going to the appointment but on meeting Edel the Speech and Language Therapist she immediately felt at ease and relaxed into the session. My daughter is currently attending for a block of 8 half hour sessions spread out over the eight weeks. Almost half way in I can see a vast improvement with my daughter’s speech. Although there are other therapists in Caint my daughter has had all over her appointments with the same speech therapist and I believe that this has been a great help to her as she feels relaxed and happy each session. I have sat in on some sessions and have been very impressed with how the session can be made fun alongside tackling the problem and encouraging change. My daughter is six years old and had been very upset and frustrated with her speech. She now has the tools to help her going forward thanks to Edel at Caint Speech Therapy.
I am principal of a large school in Swords Co Dublin. We have an Autism Unit in our school. The Caint service in Naas was recommended to me by a friend who had used it before. We found Catherine and Sarah to be extremely professional and efficient in delivering a programme for the children, not only for assessment and intervention purposes, but also in supporting our staff with programmes of work which we continued with, and which the children benefitted from long after the speech therapist finished direct intervention.
As parents of two children who require Speech and Language Therapy due to their disability, we have been very fortunate to have found Catherine, although we have to travel a long way to attend, the benefit is that we have found the staff’s dedication, professionalism, attentiveness and child focus has and will benefit our children to achieve their respective potentials, and pave the way for them to be active members of society in each of their own ways.
Caint Speech Therapy were amazing at explaining our son’s communication difficulties and worked with his school to make sure he was getting the most out of his therapy. He has made excellent progress and loved all the fun activities in his sessions.

Our son Robert has been attending Caint Speech Therapy for the last 3 years. During that time his communication and comprehension abilities have improved substantially. We have found the services to be excellent, very focused on need, and delivered in a friendly and caring manner. We would recommend Caint to anyone seeking speech therapy.
I was worried that Emily would fall behind in school from an early age and the impact this would have in the long term. Catherine was recommended to me by a friend. From the beginning I was impressed with the individualised focus of the programme which was tailored specifically to meet Emily’s needs. I have noticed a change in Emily. She is more motivated to learn and wants to do her best. She mixes more with her friends and is more outgoing. Overall I’m very pleased with the development in Emily since she commenced the speech and language support.
