Who are we?
We are Speech and Language Therapists and Therapy Assistants who work in the under 5’s or Over 5’s Teams. We are trained to work with children with a wide range of speech, language, communication and eating and drinking needs. Many of us have undertaken additional specialist training.
Are you worried about your child’s talking?
Would you like advice about how to help your child’s communication? Why not come to one of our drop-in clinics for a chat with a speech and language therapist? No appointment necessary. Your child must be registered with a Lewisham GP.
