Children's Speech and Language Therapy

Special Schools

Specialist support to children (0-19) with a range of specific speech, language and communication difficulties and those with difficulties swallowing, eating and drinking.

Special schools


Special school banner

Special school provision includes highly specialist staff who have a range of skills in working with children and young people with speech, language and communication needs. It is therefore not necessary for every child at a special school to receive direct or individual NHS Speech & Language Therapy support. Teachers and Teaching Assistants are able to support children's communication needs.  Children will not automatically be seen by NHS SLT when they start school.


If you or your child's teacher feel that there are specific concerns, please contact us to discuss these. We may feel it is helpful to carry out an assessment.
