Speech Language and Communication Disorder Team – Parents Information and Activities

A very warm welcome to the Parent Page from the Speech Language and Communication Disorder Team.

When we are out and about working with the parents whose children are on our caseload, we are always asked about other activities that can be done at home. So via this page, we aim to keep you updated with activities, resources and website links that we think will be useful to you to support your child’s speech and language skills.
