Working together, working with you

Children's SLT - What We Do

We assess, diagnose and provide advice and support for children with a range of speech, language and communication difficulties. Our main areas of work include:-

·         Speech sound difficulties (depending on a child’s age)

·         Difficulties with language processing, word finding and putting words into sentences

·         Social interaction skills and abilities at a range of levels

Many children we work with have needs in one or more of the following areas:

·         Developmental Language Disorder

·         Verbal Dyspraxia

  • Autism
  • Stammering
  • Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC)
  • Deafness
  • Voice Problems

 For some children with complex needs we also assess eating, drinking and swallowing abilities and offer advice and support as needed.
