Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) Service

The Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) service is provided by Central London Community Healthcare (CLCH).

The service provide assessment for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs and/or problems with eating, drinking, and swallowing. Following diagnosis, the service may provide therapy for children and young people whose difficulties have a significant impact on their functional, everyday communication skills.

The aim is to make sure that children and young people reach their speech, language and communication potential, whatever their level of ability and preferred communication method.

The service is delivered on the principle that all children and young people’s communication skills are best developed through interaction with the people who are most familiar with the children and young people, and in their everyday situations and environments. There is also a strong focus on early identification and intervention.

Team members work collaboratively with parents and carers, as well as education, early years, and health colleagues. They provide training and advice for parents/carers and key staff, and work alongside others in the children’s workforce to create communication supportive environments and to support individual children. This is to ensure a whole system approach to meeting speech, language and communication needs.
