Services for Parents

Services for Parents

We are committed to working in partnership with parents, and to providing a high quality, evidence-based speech and language therapy service to children experiencing difficulties in the following areas :

- Understanding spoken language

- Expressing ideas and using sentences

- Pronouncing words and sounds appropriately for their age

- Interacting socially

- Choosing words

- Eating and Drinking

- Communication difficulties associated with special needs

We conduct a full assessment of a child's speech and language needs, including taking a detailed case history. Following the assessment, the speech and language therapist will discuss with parents the most appropriate package of care, which could include :

- A school visit

- Advice and monitoring

- Home or school programmes

- Regular therapy sessions

In addition, SLC therapists can provide support and advice for parents whose children

are undergoing assessment in preparation for an Education, Health and Care Plan.

The SLC team do not offer a service for all types of communication difficulties in children

as we believe our clients deserve a specialist speech and language therapy service,

but we may be able to signpost parents to other specialist speech and

language therapy colleagues when necessary.
