In line with national guidance we have made some changes to our service as part of Locala's COVID-19 (Coronavirus) response.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created pressure for our Children’s Speech and Language Therapy team and as a result we have changed the service we offer. The support we provide may consist of telephone or video consultations and some face to face sessions - this will be decided on a case by case basis. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation to this adaptation to our service.
Our Locala Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs) work with children aged 0-18 years who have communication and/or feeding and swallowing difficulties. These children may experience difficulties in the following areas:
Our SLT team provides assessment and advice within each of these areas.
There are many reasons why children may have such difficulties and they can be as a result of language disorders, speech sound difficulties, learning disabilities, developmental or biomedical conditions, stammering, Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), hearing impairment and physical difficulties.
