The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service is a countywide specialist service for children and young people aged 0 - 18 and their families and carers. We work within a variety of locations including mainstream schools, community clinics, preschool settings, special schools and client’s homes.

Speech and Language Therapists are qualified professionals with an in-depth knowledge of difficulties with communication and eating and drinking disorders. This includes the following areas:

  • language delay and disorder
  • speech sound difficulties
  • profound hearing impairment
  • cleft palate
  • stammering
  • Social communication difficulties with associated language difficulties
  • voice disorders
  • selective mutism

The service provides assessment, advice and treatment planned around the individual needs of the child and family. Advice, training and support may also be provided to teaching and support staff or other professionals as appropriate, to facilitate the development of communication skills.

Our core hours are from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.
