How do I know if my child needs to see a Speech and Language Therapist?

The following progress checker can guide you and help you to understand what to expect at each stage. You can also talk to your health visiting team, preschool, school nurse or school. It has been developed by I CAN, a national charity that leads the way on supporting and promoting children’s communication skills. It will also link you to their advice and resources which you may find helpful before considering a referral to the speech and language therapy service or whilst you are waiting for your first appointment.

I CAN Progress Checker

How do I refer my child to Speech and Language Therapy?

We run an open referral system. This means anyone can refer a child, you do not need to ask a professional to do this for you. However, we do not accept referrals without parents’ knowledge and permission.

You can self-refer by downloading and completing a referral form and sending it to our address above.

When you bring your child for assessment we chat to you about your concerns and find out as much as possible about their development.

See more information on how we can help.
