Mary Hare Therapy Centre
With decades of first hand experience of working with deaf children, Mary Hare is always looking for ways of sharing the expertise of its dedicated staff for the benefit of the wider community.
To this end, we have opened our own Therapy Centre, with specialist services available to local people and those from further afield. To begin with we have concentrated on two areas:
Speech & Language Therapy
The Speech and Language Therapy department at Mary Hare has been well established under the management of Katherine Clements for nearly 15 years now. It provides specialist services to more than 200 deaf children, both primary and secondary age. The aim of the team is to support each pupil to reach their full communicative potential.
As an organisation we are regularly approached about private Speech Therapy, as there is a demand for this service locally and even further afield. We are pleased that from September 2020 we will be offering this service 1 day a week with plans to further expand this. Our Speech Therapy service is available for deaf children and adults, as well as those with other needs.

Mary Hare opened its Music Therapy Unit in 2006 when Arlington Arts Centre was constructed on the Seocndary School site. The Music Therapy Centre is situated on the ground floor.
Our music therapist works with pupils at the school, as well as children with special needs in the local community around Newbury. Music Therapy is of great benefit for deaf children and babies and can play an imprtant role in the development of lanugage.
