The NHS Speech and Language Therapy service for Children is based in Health Centres ,Children's Centres, schools ,CDCs and in the home. We see children from 0-18 years of age for assessment and therapy with advice and support to their families and schools. We have a well developed team of Generalist and Specialist therapists supported by Speech and Language Therapy assistants and administrative staff. All our staff are registered with the Health Professionals Council.
Speech and Language Therapists work with people who have communication difficulties. The paediatric service supports children who have problems with:
Eating, drinking and swallowing
Listening and attention
Understanding what people say to them

Saying sounds and words
Putting words into sentences
Speech and Language Therapists support the parents and carers in the child's life, also offering advice to other professionals e.g. school and pre-school staff, and fellow health professionals.
