SALT

Speech and Language Therapy

Our Speech and language therapist (SLT) works with children who have communication and/or feeding and swallowing difficulties. These children may experience difficulties in the following areas:

  • Listening to and understanding words/instructions

  • Talking in words and sentences

  • Using clear speech

  • Social communication and interaction

  • Fluent speech (stammering)

  • Eating, drinking & swallowing

There are many reasons why children may have such difficulties and they can be as a result of conditions including language delay/disorder, speech sound difficulties, learning disabilities, stammering, autism, hearing impairment and physical difficulties. 

Our specialist therapist also provides assessment and advice regarding eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.
