Description of activity

Speech and Language Therapy provides services for children and young people in the borough of Richmond in order to improve the development of the speech, language and communication of all children and offer assessment and input for children and young people who are having difficulties with:

• Attention and listening
• understanding spoken/signed language
• communicating verbally using sentences and vocabulary appropriate for their age
• Using speech sounds appropriate for their age
• Social interaction and play
• Stammering
• Voice production
• Feeding and swallowing

Speech and Language Therapy has an open referral system. Anyone - for example parents via Telephone Advice Line, health visitors, school nurses, GPs, schools, nursery or children’s centre staff - can refer a child or young person for assessment, including the young person themselves, if aged 14 or over.

Written consent from the main care giver is required before the child or young person can be referred and seen (except in the rare case of a self-referring young person aged 14+).
