We are a team of speech and language therapists and support workers who provide episodes of care to children and young people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
We offer a range of services which we deliver in time – limited episodes of care. We support children and young people who have difficulties with:
- Speech, language and communication skills
- Eating, drinking and swallowing skills
The service works closely with families, parents and carers to improve children and young people’s progress in these areas and to ensure that their potential for learning , social and emotional development is reached. When an episode of care with us ends, parents and carers may be given some strategies to support their child and can be referred back to us if further support is required.
We work in partnership with a range of other agencies and colleagues including schools, Early Years settings, children’s centres, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, medical teams and the voluntary sector.
