Speech and Language Therapy

Flockton House

Our Speech and Language Therapy service works with children with speech, language, communication or swallowing difficulties from 0 to 16 years of age.

The Trust also offers speech and language therapy services to adults who stammer.

Speech and Language Therapy teams

We have three teams: the pre-school team, the mainstream schools team and the special schools team.

The teams include specialist therapists who work with children who have communication difficulties associated with conditions such as hearing impairment, complex needs, stammering, cleft palate, autism and physical disability. There are also a team of therapists who work with children with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties. These therapists are based within the early years, schools and special schools teams, as well as a team of therapists who see children when they are in hospital.

The Speech and Language Therapist’s role is to identify children’s communication strengths and weaknesses. We also support the development of skills in the child, their carers and teachers, which will enable the child to maximise their communication potential.

Though based in clinics at Flockton House, Firth Park and Ryegate, therapists work away from their bases in the community into a wide range of settings. These include family homes, schools, nurseries and Children’s Centres.
