Children and young people’s therapies
Our service offers Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy. We support children and young people who have needs in the following areas:
- speech, language and communication needs and feeding and swallowing difficulties
- occupational performance needs which impact upon their daily participation in activities
- difficulties with movement which impact on their physical development, activity and ability to participate in play, learning and socialising.
We see children and young people from birth to age 19 who live in Buckinghamshire or have a Buckinghamshire GP. We offer information, training, advice, assessment, and therapy.
Help and support
We offer a range of support to families, schools and nurseries which can be accessed without a referral to the service.
Children and young people who have high, urgent health or equipment needs require a referral into the service.
Children and young people who have needs which do not meet these criteria are able to access support in the following ways. No referral is needed and this support can be accessed by anyone supporting the child or young person.
We run free live webinars that can be accessed by parents, carers and schools and nurseries which cover a range of topics. These are interactive sessions with the opportunity to ask questions during and after the sessions.
You can access these sessions on a laptop, tablet or phone. You do not need to pre-book or download Microsoft Teams.
Infant Language Link and Speech Link assessments and interventions are also available in all Key Stage 1 (Reception year to end of Year 2) settings in Buckinghamshire. These run alongside speech and language therapy school advice sessions to tailor advice specifically to individual children.
Speak to your child’s school for more information about this tool.
