What do we offer?

The Solihull SLT service provides advice and assessment for recommending strategies to support children with speech, language and communication disorder or delays. We then offer intervention where specialist speech and language therapy is required to support the child to communicate effectively at home and within education environments. We also have personalised safe eating guidelines to ensure that children are able to eat and drink.

Assessment Teams

We have 4 smaller teams within the overall service. Children will be offered an assessment by the team most appropriate to their needs as described on the referral. We aim to offer assessments within 18 weeks of referral.
