Who is Speech and Language Therapy for?

At The Speech Clinic, we offer intervention for a wide range of children with various difficulties, ranging from speech sound errors or delayed language development to stammering. We also treat children with formal diagnoses, including Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Acquired Brain Injury.

Assessment and Therapy

Formal assessment can be provided if necessary, using standardised assessments which generate percentile ranks. Informal assessment and diagnostic therapy is used with children requiring minimal assessment and a greater focus upon therapeutic intervention.

Formal Reports

A formal Initial Assessment Report can be provided if required (at an additional charge), however there is no obligation to request such a report as the results are discussed in detail with the family. Formal reports can be produced for Diagnosis, Annual Review, Tribunal or Medico-Legal cases.

Home and School Visits

The Speech Clinic offers intervention at home, school or nursery, on a regular or infrequent basis. This may be more convenient for families and allows for liaison with children's teachers and classroom support workers.

Professional Liaison

With parental consent, The Speech Clinic's Speech and Language Therapists will work closely with nursery/school staff and other involved professionals, as well as NHS Speech and Language Therapists. It is beneficial to coordinate therapy goals and liaise regarding intervention strategies.

Most of our families use independent Speech and Language Therapy services to supplement their NHS intervention. We are keen to work alongside NHS Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Psychologists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and medical teams. It may be appropriate for our therapist to attend multi-disciplinary planning meetings and annual reviews in order to discuss progress and plan future intervention. It is advisable that you continue to access NHS services wherever possible and we are keen to liaise with our NHS colleagues at all times.

Case Managers

At The Speech Clinic, we provide assessment and therapy for children with a wide range of disorders who are managed by appointed Case Managers.

Our Speech and Language Therapists are happy to liaise with Case Managers in order to provide an individualised package of care which meets a client's specific needs. This can include weekly or twice weekly therapy, half-termly Progress Reports and Programmes of Activities for home/school, parent/school training and attendance at planning meetings. We can provide AAC Communication Aid programming including updating the device with current vocabulary.

The Speech and Language Therapist can attend a 'meet and greet' session in order for the client and their family to make a decision about the appointment.
