Better Care

SLT & SEND support

The children’s SLT service works across Birmingham closely with partners in the Local Authority and across the wider children’s workforce from early years onwards to identify, assess and support children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) and swallowing needs in line with the Children and Families Act 2014.

Following the recent joint CQC / Ofsted Local Area inspection, the SLT service is working closely with Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group and Local Authority partners to improve access to Speech and Language Therapy and collaborate to implement the whole-city SEND  improvements required.  Click here to download the Birmingham Written Statement of Action.

The SLT service is committed to working closely with parents / carers as well as other partners, being open and honest and supporting the children and young people to have a voice.
