If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Speech and language (community) referrals

Referrals for children under five

Please download our document on when to be concerned about a child's speech and language development (PDF 102Kb) before making a referral.

Referrals for school-aged children

If you are concerned about your child’s speech and language, talk to the special educational needs coordinator (SENCo) at their school.

Schools should have access to a speech and language therapist who will support school staff in developing children's speech, language and communication development. 

The relevant referral form must be accompanied by a speech and language therapy checklist for the school year that the child is in (you can download these below).

The checklist should be filled in by the child's teacher.
