Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy

Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy provides family-centred support for children who have difficulties with speech, language, communication and feeding.
Locations
We offer this service in the following areas...

Our experienced team of therapists will work with you and your child to create a treatment programme around your specific situation and goals. Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy is a holistic service that aims to help your child with difficulties relating to communication.

We offer treatments from Little Braxted Hall, Stapleford House in Chelmsford, St Michael’s Hospital in Braintree, and the Witham Health Centre. These are easily accessible, safe and comfortable clinics, with plenty of free parking on-site or nearby. We offer flexible treatment options where needed and our Speech and Language Therapists may be able to offer home, nursery and school visits.

We are firm believers in multi-disciplinary working and encourage liaising with other people involved in your child’s care, such as Teachers, GPs, Health Visitors and other health professionals. You can also relax in knowing that our team follows the high standards set out by the Health and Care Professionals Council, meaning that our assessments and treatment approaches are evidence-based and current.

Our self-pay option provides an easily accessible solution for parents/carers who are looking for a timely, professionally recognised Speech and Language Therapy assessment for their child.

How can Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy help my child?

At Wellbeing, we believe that every child has the right to reach their highest speech, language, voice and communication potential. We recognise that problems with speaking and communicating can be life-changing, and can be a cause of concern and anxiety for the family.

Our self-pay Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy service supports children and young people (from 2 to 18 years) to communicate and to overcome a wide range of developmental difficulties and disorders.

Working in partnership with C&D Independent Speech and Language Therapy, Wellbeing is able to help with the following speech and language concerns:

  • Speech and language delay
  • Speech and language disorder
  • Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
  • Verbal dyspraxia
  • Learning disabilities
  • Syndromes such as Down Syndrome and Fragile X Syndrome
  • Social communication difficulties including Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Stammering
  • Processing of language and auditory memory
  • Cleft Lip/Palate (after discharge from specialist support services)
