Speech and Language Therapists

At Blossom, we believe that every child deserves their voice to be heard. Our Speech and Language Therapists work jointly with the Occupational Therapists, to ensure children’s needs are recognised and supported in all aspects of their lives.

children in the UK

Did you know that 1 in 10 of all children in the UK have a speech, language or communication difficulty that requires support? We work with children and young people with a wide range of speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).

These include:

  • Speech Sound Delay/Disorder
  • Stammering (also called stuttering, or dysfluency)
  • Expressive and Receptive Language needs
  • Developmental Language Disorder (DLD)
  • SLCN in the early years (‘late talkers’)
  • Selective Mutism (SM)
  • SLCN associated with learning disabilities, or developmental conditions
  • Social communication and interaction needs, which may or may not be associated with autism.
  • SLCN associated with social, emotional or mental health needs (SEMH) including behavioural needs.


Specialist Assessment

We also able to offer specialist assessment, advice and support for feeding, eating or swallowing needs, including ARFID (Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder) Our Speech and Language Therapists work with children and young people from around 2 years old, all the way up to 18. We work in partnership with the child, the family and their educational setting to ensure that their support is relevant, meaningful and effective in all parts of their lives. We create bespoke, personalised packages of therapy to meet the needs of the individual.

We also work directly with nurseries and schools to help them embed good communication into their settings.

All our Speech and Language Therapists have an undergraduate / postgraduate degree in Speech and Language Therapy, and are registered with the HCPC (Health Care Professionals Council) and the RCSLT (Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists). We value a high level of professional supervision and continuing professional development (CPD) to ensure our children receive the very best care.
