What is speech and language therapy?
- Paying attention
- Following instructions
- Using words in sentences
- Learning and remembering new words
- Difficulty producing certain sounds
- Speaking fluently and confidently
- Making friends
- Understanding and explaining how and why questions
- Remembering information
Some children may have difficulty with this as part of an ongoing condition such as hearing impairment, autism, ADHD, cleft palate, cerebral palsy or other complex health conditions but many children will not have a recognised ‘diagnosis’.
