Speech and Language Therapists provide assessment, diagnosis and therapy for children with a wide range of communication difficulties. We also provide advice for prevention and early detection of communication problems, and information and support for parents and teachers of children with communication and language difficulties. Communication impairments may affect speech pronunciation, language development (comprehension and use of language) and speech fluency (stammering).
There may be other diagnoses such as cleft lip and palate, autism or learning difficulties. Following assessment, we may provide therapy in the clinic or refer on to an appropriate service. The therapy may involve individual or group therapy, or advice to home or school.
