Speech and Language Therapy
Services for children who have speech, language and communication needs.
In Nottingham, the Children's Speech and Language Therapy Service supports children from birth to the end of school. The Service is hosted by NHS Nottinghamshire Community Health.
Nottingham Children's Speech and Language Therapy Service provides support for children attending schools in both Nottingham City Local Authority and Nottinghamshire County Local Authority.
The first line of contact with Speech and Language Therapy is usually through the Community Speech and Language Therapy Teams, with access to further packages of care as needed.
There are 4 Community Speech and Language Therapy teams – North, South, East and West. Most children usually receive support from one of these teams.
The Service also has Speech and Language Therapists who work across Nottinghamshire to support children with more specific and complex needs, including:
- autistic spectrum disorders (ASD)
- cleft lip and palate (CLP)
- eating and drinking difficulties
- hearing impairment (HI)
- learning difficulties (LD)
- physical difficulties (PD)
- pre-school complex needs (PSCN)
- specific language impairment (SLI)
- stammering (dysfluency)
Support from these therapists is decided through criteria used by the Speech and Language Therapy Service. If further information is required, please contact the local Speech and Language Therapy team.
