Guidance and helpful information

Before making a referral, you should try activities and toolkits with the young person as listed on the pages below.

These toolkits will help you, and us, to establish your child or young person’s level of need and collect information which will be useful when we first see them.

Please follow the instructions in the toolkit, implement the strategies suggested within them and keep a record of the results as we will require you to submit this information to us if you find that you do need assistance from the Speech and Language Therapy Service.

How can we help?

Speech and Language Therapists offer support to children and young people from birth to 18 years where communication difficulties are impacting on their ability to fully participate in daily life. We assess, diagnose and manage children and young people with communication and swallowing difficulties.

We work in partnership with children and young people, their families and other professionals to reduce the impact of these difficulties, recognising the importance of working with the child in the most appropriate environment.
