Speech & language therapy (children’s)
On this page:
We are a team of Speech and Language Therapists and assistants who provide a child and family centred approach.
We work directly with families and indirectly by working closely with our partner services in Health, Education and Social Care.
We contribute our expert knowledge of communication, speech, language, and feeding and swallowing to the team of professionals working with the child and their family.
We provide support for families and staff from a variety of settings, so that they can help the child to reach their full potential in their everyday lives.
We focus on targets, jointly agreed with families, which promote the child’s wellbeing and independence as well as supporting their learning.
