  • Speech sounds difficulties
  • Stammering
  • Voice disorders
  • Language delay
  • Selective mutism
  • Hearing impairment

Speech and language therapists work in a range of settings in Brent including clinics, pre-schools children's centres, schools and further education colleges. Referrals are accepted from anyone, as long as a parent of the child or young person who is being referred, has consented. To make a referral, you must write to the service and include the child or young person's date of birth, address, GP, telephone number and needs.
