All about us
The children we work with may have difficulty:
- listening to others
- understanding words and instructions
- talking in words and sentences
- using clear speech
- getting on with others
- eating, drinking and swallowing
We assess children and young people’s speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) and eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.
There is no cost for our service.
Who is this service for?
We support children and young people aged 0-16 with an identified or suspected speech, language and communication need and those with feeding and swallowing difficulties.
We support children and families living in the North of Kirklees which covers Batley, Cleckheaton, Dewsbury, Liversedge, Heckmondwike, Ravensthorpe and Mirfield.
How to access what we do
You can refer into our team via the Contact page (opens new page) of our website or contact us on 0300 304 5555.
We have an open referral policy which means anyone can refer to the service including parents/carers. When we receive a referral it will be looked at by a Speech and Language Therapist before it is accepted.
When a referral is accepted you will be contacted by letter and will then be invited to attend an assessment session with your child in clinic or sometimes in school/nursery.
You are welcome to stay and take part in the sessions, but it would be better if you can manage it, to leave other children at home when you come to an appointment.
