The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service works with families, education staff and other health professionals to support children’s speech, language, communication and feeding skills.
We work with children aged from birth through to the end of their full-time education whose speech, language, communication or feeding difficulties impact on their lives. We aim to provide practical advice and support to empower people within the child’s support network to develop their functional communication and feeding skills. We are here to support families when they need us and our involvement with families will depend on their individual needs.
What to do if you are concerned about your child’s speech, language or feeding skills?
The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service can offer you advice and support to help you support your child’s speech, language and communication development. Our dysphagia team can offer advice and support regarding your child’s feeding and swallowing skills.
