Speech and Language Support
Gold Surestart’s Speech & Language Therapy (SLT) Service aims to improve early identification and support for children with speech, language and communication difficulties.
The SLT Team consists of our Speech and Language Therapist and two Assistants. The SLT Team supports those who are closest to the child to: understand typical communication development, recognise speech and language difficulties, put strategies in place to support the child’s communication development, to access further support if necessary.
We offer parent information workshops as well as parent and child groups and a home visit may be offered. The SLT Team also provide advice, support and training for the Surestart Team and for education staff and Early Year’s Teams throughout the Surestart areas.
If you live within a Surestart area and have concerns about your child’s speech and language development, please speak to any member of our SureStart Team.
