Children's Speech and Language Therapy

About the Service

 
The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy service offers a child and family centred approach to support children and young people with speech, language, communication, eating and drinking difficulties in Hertfordshire and West Essex.

We work in partnership with parents or carers and other colleagues to promote positive outcomes for children.

The Children’s Speech & Language Therapy Team is made up of qualified speech and language therapists, therapy assistants and administrative and clerical staff. All the therapists are registered with the national regulatory body, the Health & Care Professionals Council (HCPC) which maintains an online register of all Speech and Language Therapists meeting the required standards. 

All therapists are members of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT).

The Children’s Speech & Language Therapy Service supports children from 0-16 years old.  We also support young people aged 16 - 19 years old who have a statement of Educational Need or an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) who are attending schools in Hertfordshire and West Essex.
