Paediatric speech and language therapy (Brent)

The Brent paediatric speech and language therapy service assess, diagnose, and provide therapy to children with speech, language, communication and/or swallowing problems to help them communicate to the best of their ability.

Our therapists use specialist skills to support children and work as part of a multi-disciplinary team including parents, carers, educational staff and other professionals. Our team is made up of speech and language therapists supported by administrators and an assistant. All the speech and language therapists are registered members of the health and care professionals council and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

We see children with difficulties in the following areas:

  • Understanding and spoken language
  • Speech sounds difficulties
  • Stammering
  • Voice disorders
  • Language delay
  • Selective mutism
  • Hearing impairment
  • Cleft palate
  • Feeding and/or swallowing
  • Social communication skills/ autistic spectrum disorders
  • Or a mix of any of these.

Sometimes these difficulties occur alongside other problems such as learning difficulties, but this is not always the case. Children might be born with these difficulties or encounter them as a result of illness or trauma.

The service operates an open-referral system. That means anyone can make a referral once parental consent has been gained. If you feel your child needs to be referred, you can talk to your health visitor, GP, or school/nursery. You can also contact us directly.

We accept written referrals stating the child's needs, their date of birth, address, GP and telephone number. The child needs to be a Brent resident and/or have a Brent GP. Referrals will be acknowledged within two weeks of receipt.
