Children's Speech & Language Therapy in Buckinghamshire

Early Years Complex Needs Team

Our team of specialist Speech and Language Therapists works with children aged from 0- 5 years with complex health and communication needs. We support children’s development of communication skills using spoken language, signing, symbols, and a range of other communication methods.

We assess and support children within Early Years settings and their homes.

We work with children with different types of complex medical needs including:

  • Physical/Motor impairment
  • Visual impairment
  • Neurological impairment (e.g. epilepsy)
  • Degenerative medical conditions
  • Chronic health needs
  • Acquired disorders (following head injury, stroke etc)
  • Social Communication Difficulties or Autistic Spectrum Conditions
  • Learning difficulties/global delay, including profound and multiple learning difficulties
  • Genetic diseases (such as tubular sclerosis)
  • Significant additional or alternative communication needs (communication book/ switches/ communication aid)

Within all settings we work within a multi disciplinary team including staff in Early Years Settings, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Paediatricians, and any other professionals that may be involved with the child.
