The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service is here to help you support your child’s speech, language and communication skills. Our dysphagia team can offer advice and support regarding your child’s feeding and swallowing skills.
Our therapists know that parents and careers are the best people to support children’s speech, language and communication skills. You understand your child the best; you know
Children’s speech, language and communication skills develop at different ages. There can be a lot of variation in when children develop these skills. A good language and communication learning environment can support these areas.
This short video called "What role do parents play in early language development?” produced by the Hanen Centre, gives some ideas on how you can help in everyday activities. The approach of integrating activities into everyday things at home is also relevant for all children with speech, language, and/or communication difficulties.
We have several therapists trained in this approach (Hanen) in our service, however if your child needs support we will always discuss with you the different options and approaches available to see which would help you and your child the most.
