A mix of any of the above.
What we offer
We work alongside families and other professionals and:

- Offer groups and one to one sessions working towards individual goals.
- Provide a child-centred care plan.
Feeding and swallowing
Children with feeding and swallowing difficulties are referred for assessment by a doctor. Urgent referrals are seen within 48 hours and non-urgent referrals are seen within four weeks. All Speech and Language Therapists offering feeding and swallowing assessments have completed additional training in Dysphagia (feeding and swallowing difficulties).
We work in partnership with safeguarding nurses and social services to safeguard children and to ensure that their needs are met. We may complete early help assessments or contact other relevant services if we have concerns or if a child is not being brought to appointments.
