Speech and language therapist


Speech and language therapists work with parents and others to assess a child to find out if they have difficulties with speech and/or language, communication or eating and drinking. The therapist will consider how the difficulties might affect their life and, if appropriate, decide how the child can be helped to reach their full communication potential.
