Pre-school Advice Clinics

This will be a 15-minute face to face appointment to discuss your concerns and complete a brief assessment of your child.


Your child does not need a referral for you to access an Advice Clinic to get advice on how to support your child.


Please see attached flyer for more information


Please contact the children centre’s directly to book your appointment.

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.

Each mainstream state school or college will be offered a termly drop in session where school staff can get advice about a child/children in their class and how to support them in school and possible next steps. These sessions are for school staff to get advice about children not currently on the speech and language therapy caseload.

Larger schools will be offered half termly drop in sessions where needed.

Please note, school staff working with children and young people currently on the mainstream schools speech and language therapy caseload will continue to be offered advice during therapy sessions and/or teacher meetings.
