Speech and Language Therapy Early Years update
This has been a challenging time for SALT services. This update has been provided by the SALT Therapy Services Manager.
‘We continue to work with families and settings to support children with Speech and Language Therapy needs. All new referrals will be reviewed and support given to the most urgent cases including those with complex health needs and those requiring statutory assessment. Families and Early Years setting staff continue to be able to access advice from a speech and language therapist without referral by calling the main service number on 01296 566045.
From February half term parents can now book a scheduled advice session by calling the number above and can choose either a Microsoft Teams or phone appointment. Early Years setting staff can book an advice session via Microsoft Teams by completing and submitting a request form. Full information can be found on the SALT website here: EY advice link’
