We support children and young people aged four to 19 years with language and communication needs.

We can provide:

  • advice, support and training to your child's school
  • assessment of your child's needs within their school setting
  • strategies and resources
  • support to help your child's school cater for your child's needs
  • support with transition at all key stages

We cannot provide support if:

  • speech (clarity/articulation) is the main concern; please seek advice from a Speech and Language Therapist (SALT)
  • receptive and expressive language skills are within average ranges, as identified by a Speech and Language Therapist
  • primary needs are literacy
