Speech & Language Therapy

Our team of speech and language therapists and trained clinical support workers works with children up to 18 years of age to help your child develop the best possible communication skills they are capable of.

Children's Services / young children playing

We aim to enable parents and other carers to support children's speech, language, communication or swallowing needs in everyday environments.

We achieve this by training and supporting you and others to make the most of your child's unique abilities. We also work directly with some children.

If you are concerned about your child's speech, language, communication or feeding/swallowing, you can talk to your GP, health visitor, school or other professional involved with your child about a referral to us.

You are also welcome to contact us directly if you would like to discuss any aspect of your child's speech, language and communication development or if you would like some advice.

Referrals can be received from your GP, Health Visitor, School or other professionals who may be involved with your child's health.
