Role of the therapist

The Speech and Language Therapy team work collaboratively with school staff, students’ families, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy as well as working individually with the student.  The SALT team provides assessment, training and support for students with Speech, Language, Communication, eating drinking and swallowing difficulties.

Students can be referred into the service directly by parent/guardian or from within the school with parent/guardian consent. Once a referral is accepted, a student could be seen in school and at home.
