Screening & Intervention

If your child is struggling with their speech, it's important that they get the right support. They may not need to see a speech and language therapist, but may instead benefit from some activities at home or in their early years setting or school.

If they need more support, they can be referred to the Speech and Language service. Referrals to the service need to show that your child has an identified and persistent speech, language or communication need.

This evidence needs to be one of the following;

  • Your child has a medical diagnosis that has a strong association with communication difficulties, for example Down’s Syndrome.
  • Your child has a stammer
  • Your child has completed a short intervention from our list of recommended activities for 10-12 weeks and has made little or no progress.

During this period of Covid-19 we have extended the resources and support available to parents. This means that you can evidence this even if your child is not currently attending their school or setting.

When you have completed 10-12 weeks of activities with your child, please use our intervention form to record the intervention and progress made. This can then be submitted as your evidence alongside your referral form
