We can signpost you to an independent high quality, detailed speech & language assessment for an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or for a tribunal. This would be with one of our speech and language therapist associates who has worked extensively in the field of special educational needs and disability. They can also provide guidance and support for the tribunal process and attend tribunals with you.
The assessment can take place in your home or at an educational setting. Children aged 3-17 are eligible. The costs vary according to the level of detail required in the report.
We no longer provide speech and language therapy (SaLT) for individual children, funded by parents. This is because we focus on providing a SaLT service to schools, which is usually free (or sometimes low-cost) for families to access.
Ask your school if they buy in a SaLT service from Talking Outcomes. If they don’t, feel free to send the SENCO or deputy headteacher a link to our website and suggest it might be a good idea!
