Speech & Language

Screening & Intervention

If your child is struggling with their speech, language or communication, it's important that they get the right support. They may not need to see a speech and language therapist, but may instead benefit from some activities at home or in their early years setting or school. You can contact Just One Number to discuss this with the team. They will be able to advise which activities may suit your child's needs best.

If your child needs more support, they can be referred to the Speech and Language service. Referrals to the service need to show that your child has an identified and persistent speech, language or communication need.

This evidence needs to be one of the following;

  • Your child has a medical diagnosis that has a strong association with communication difficulties, for example Down’s Syndrome.
  • Your child has a stammer.
  • Your child has completed a short intervention from our list of recommended activities for 10-12 weeks and has made little or no progress.

When you have completed 10-12 weeks of activities with your child, please use our intervention form to record the intervention and progress made. This can then be submitted as your evidence alongside your referral.
