Speech and Language Therapy Self-Referral
Expert advice and support for children with speech and language difficulties in Luton and Bedfordshire.
If your child is in pre-school or younger and you are worried about their speech, language and communication development you can complete a Pre-School Parent/Carer Referral Form.
Please note, all referrals are triaged to ensure that a specialist Speech and Language Therapy appointment is the most appropriate next step for the child/young person. It is therefore important that you include as much information as you can within your referral. If the child does not currently require specialist level Speech and Language Therapy, we will contact the referrer to advise of this and suggest alternative support.
Accessing informal advice:
If you would prefer an informal discussion about your child’s progress, you can request a 15 minute Advice Session via telephone call. During the session a therapist will talk through your concerns with you and can then make decisions together about what happens next. For further information
