Speech and Language Therapy - Children

SALT-Children.png

The children’s Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) service is available to all children and young people aged 0 to 16 years old, or up to the age of 19 years if they are in full time education at school or college.

The service is for children with speech, language, communication and/or eating and drinking difficulties.

The aim of the Speech and Language Therapist is to help the child or young person to reach their full potential by providing assessment, diagnosis and intervention through programmes of activities, individual or group therapy and advice and support. We also have a team of Speech and Language Therapy Support Practitioners who work in primary schools throughout Wolverhampton to provide therapy.

The Speech and Language Therapy team works in close partnership with the child, their family and other professionals such as teachers, nursery staff, health visitors and Early Years workers, to promote positive outcomes for all children.
How To Access This Service
Anyone can refer a child to this service by completing the referral forms. This includes health visitors, GPs, Consultants, teachers and parents.

All Speech and Language Therapists are registered with the Health Professions Council as the national regulatory body and with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
