Speech and language therapyCommunication Needs Pathway for Schools
What we do
We support children’s speech, language and communication, up to the age of 16. Learning to communicate is a complex skill that is very important for social and educational development. Children may experience difficulties with:
Difficulties may be due to hearing impairment, cleft palate, physical difficulties, learning difficulties or Autism Spectrum (ASD). Our team of therapists includes specialists in all of these areas. For many other children there is no obvious explanation for their difficulties.
We support children in clinics, homes, Early Years settings, children’s centres, primary schools and special schools. To be effective, Therapists need to work closely with parents, teachers, education support agencies and other health professionals.

If a parent, teacher or health professional is concerned about a child’s speech and language development, they can refer directly to the service for an assessment (referral forms are below).
Speech and language ‘Drop-in’ sessions are held at children centres where parents and carers of pre-school children can discuss their child’s speech and language development.
