What do we do?

Speech and language therapists (SLTs) work with children aged 0-16 years who have communication and/or feeding and swallowing difficulties. These children may experience difficulties in the following areas:

  • Listening to and understanding words/instructions
  • Talking in words and sentences
  • Using clear speech
  • Social communication and interaction
  • Fluent speech (stammering)
  • Eating, drinking & swallowing

There are many reasons why children may have such difficulties and they can be as a result of conditions including language delay/disorder, speech sound difficulties, learning disabilities, stammering, autism, hearing impairment and physical difficulties.

We have specialist therapists who provide assessment and advice regarding eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.
