For some parents/carers who have called the advice line, there will be a need for a longer discussion to offer further advice and to help decide next steps following on from their 10 minutes phone advice session offered by the duty therapist.
When this is needed the duty therapist will book you into a 20 minute face to face or phone drop in session. You can choose which option would suit you best.
We can arrange for a face to face interpreter or a phone interpreter to help with the session. Please let the duty therapist know this when the appointment is made with you.
The parent/carer drop in sessions are run every six weeks between 9.30am 2.30pm and will usually be held at Wood End Centre. These sessions are for parents only and your child can go to school as usual.
Your child does not need to have a referral to access the school age parent drop in session.
Please note, parents/carers of children currently known to the mainstream schools speech and language service will have regular contact with their therapist and can call the advice line on 01895 488 200 if they want to speak to their child’s therapist.
