Children's Speech & Language Therapy in Buckinghamshire

Children and Young People

Information for you

Speech and Language therapists (SLTs) work with children and young people to develop their speech, language and social communication skills:

    • Speech = the way sounds are pronounced and used in words. This can include working on specific speech sounds (like ‘r’, ‘sh’) or pronouncing longer words.  We also work with children and young people who stammer.
    • Language = learning new words, joining words together to make sentences and use different grammatical structures. Seb shares his experiences of having language difficulties here:
  • Social communication skills = how we use language in everyday life to make and keep friends, work together in groups, have conversations etc.

We also work with children and young people who have problems eating and drinking.

We usually work with children and young people in nurseries/pre-schools, schools, and Further Education Colleges.  Sometimes we might visit a child at home, or invite you in to the clinic for an assessment.  We are also developing a new service, delivering Speech and Language therapy via Skype.
