Help to find an independent Speech and Language therapists

Speech and language therapists (SLTs) work with children aged 0-16 years who have communication and/or feeding and swallowing difficulties. These children may experience difficulties in the following areas: 

  • Listening to and understanding words/instructions 
  • Talking in words and sentences 
  • Using clear speech 
  • Social communication and interaction 
  • Fluent speech (stammering) 
  • Eating, drinking & swallowing 

Some families chose to use independent therapy services, such as SLT's.

The reasons for this can be varied, but it is really important for families to make sure that any independent services are trustworthy.

The Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Independent Practice (ASLTIP) provides information and a contact point for members of the public searching for an Independent Speech and Language Therapist (SLT's).

The ASLTIP website (opens link in new window) can help you to find therapists in your local area, as well as providing you with more information.

The ASLTIP website also has a range of news, information and resources that families can use straight away.  This can be found on the ASLTIP news page (opens link in new window)
