Speech and Language Therapists work with children and adults to provide assessments and treatment for speech, language (understanding and use of spoken language), stammering, communication and swallowing difficulties.
A Paediatric Speech and Language Therapist can work with your child to assess their speech, language and communication needs. Intervention focuses on agreed goals to develop your child's skills in any area they may be finding difficult. Assessment and therapy can occur in a variety of environments including your child's home, preschool, nursery or school.
Speech, Language and communication development plays a huge role in each of our lives e.g. socialising, watching the television, learning and building relationships.
