Initial Assessment

Children with communication difficulties

  • If you are unsure whether your child needs speech and language therapy but someone else has raised a concern (your child’s Health Visitor, a teacher, or a family member) you could look at the Talking Point website. You can use their 'ages and stages' checklists or try the Progress Checker. These are just guides, but can help you decide if your child's communication skills are appropriate for their age or if they may need extra help.
