**Speech and Language Therapy for Children NHS

'Open Monday to Friday from 9am until 5pm'

Children’s Speech and Language Therapy is provided by the NHS across Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent. Speech and language therapists work with babies, children and young people who have speech, language, communication and/or eating and drinking needs. Teams include Speech and Language Therapists, Speech and Language Therapy Assistants and support staff.

What the service offers:

  • Assessment
  • Advice
  • Diagnosis-if appropriate
  • Therapy – this may be direct (therapist working directly with child) or indirect (therapist working through a parent, carer or other professional)
  • Programmes and resources to support work at home and in a setting
  • Training – child specific or topic specific

Therapists work in the community in a wide range of settings. These include: family homes, community clinics, hospital, schools, nurseries, children’s centres.

We work in partnership with a range of other agencies including Education and Early Years Services, Social Services and the Voluntary Sector.

What will happen at Speech and Language Therapy?

The speech and language therapist will ask you some questions about your child’s development. It is helpful if you bring your ‘red book’ along and any other referral letters you have had. The therapist may use toys and pictures to encourage your child to interact. They will discuss their findings with you and agree on the next steps.

How can I refer?

A referral can be made by a Health Visitor, teacher, nursery practitioner, GP, other professional, parent or those with parental responsibility. Please contact your local Speech and Language Therapy team for referral advice.
