Speech and Language Therapy (Camden Children's service)

Main Address

Hours

We offer a service to children from birth to 19 years to children with speech and language delays and disorders in Camden.

The service operates from a range of settings, including children’s homes, Children’s Centres, Nurseries, Health Centres, Mainstream and Special Schools, and Specialist Units.

We work directly with children and families, providing assessment within 6 weeks of referral and ongoing intervention as needed.

In schools we work alongside teaching staff to ensure that the child has a programme, which will enhance his/her access to the educational curriculum.
