Speech & Language Drop-in Clinics
As our children learn to speak, we may have all sorts of queries and concerns about whether their development is normal. Are they speaking less than other children their age? Do they have issues with hearing? Speech and Language therapists run drop-in sessions across the area. These sessions are not a full assessment and if you feel that your child has significant needs, then a referral to a speech and language therapist would be more appropriate.
Drop-in sessions are open to anyone with concerns about how their child’s communication is developing, and as such, the sessions may be busy. Depending on numbers attending, you might not be seen and may be advised to attend another drop-in.
Children must be accompanied by a parent, or a person with parental responsibility. If you are attending because your health visitor or nursery has raised concerns about your child’s speech, then please make sure you bring the referral form with you. However, if you are attending due to a concern that you have yourself, the referral form can be filled in when you attend.
