The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service supports children and young people in Doncaster and Bassetlaw aged 0-16 years who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing. We also support young people aged 16 – 19 years old who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) who are attending schools in Doncaster and Bassetlaw.
The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service provide assessment, diagnosis and treatment for children and young people with speech, language, communication, and feeding and swallowing difficulties.
The majority of difficulties fall into the following areas:
- understanding what is said to them
- expressing themselves
- talking clearly (saying speech sounds)
- eating and drinking
The service sees children and young people in clinics, hospitals, schools, nurseries and other early years settings, and at home.
