Drop in Session

Children and Family Health Devon’s Speech and Language Therapy Service virtual drop-in session for parent and professionals.

What?

A virtual drop-in for parents of children 3 and under and professionals who are concerned about their speech, language, and communication development.

This will be delivered via the ‘Attend Anywhere’ platform.

The Speech and Language Therapist will spend up to 10 minutes listening to the parents’ / professional’s concerns, asking questions and observing how the child and parent(s) communicate and interact.

All families will be given advice and / or ideas to try at home.

For some children, it will be recommended that they are referred to the Speech and Language Therapy service for a more detailed assessment.

Professionals with concerns about the speech, language, communication development of children up to the age of 3 years should ensure that the child and family remain anonymous when sharing their concerns via the drop-in service.
