Speech and Language Therapy 

How do I get my child seen?


Anyone can refer a child to Speech & Language Therapy (including parents and carers) but we advise you to talk to your child’s health  visitor or staff at your local children’s centre before making a referral.  

Send completed forms to the address on the contact page.

Where do we work?


Our Speech & Language therapists are divided into five teams.  Four of the teams are each based in a different part of Swindon (North, Central North, South, and Central South). The fifth team is the Integrated Team for Disabled Children (based at the Saltway Centre), and works across Swindon. All our Speech & Language therapists work alongside other professionals from Swindon Borough Council and NHS Swindon (e.g. health visitors, school staff, social workers, teachers of the deaf, school nurses, and physiotherapists).

Children are seen a variety of settings, We sometimes see children in:

  • Mainstream school (including special resource provision)
  • Special school
  • Health Centre or Surgery
  • Home
  • Hospital
  • Pre-school/nursery
  • Some Children's centres

We will talk to you about the best arrangement for your child.
