At SLT for Kids we have qualified and experienced speech and language therapists who can carry out a range of assessments to suit the needs of your child. The speech and language therapists use the assessment to identify your child’s specific difficulties and the impact these have on your child’s daily activities at home and in school.

Benefits of SLT assessments:

  • Gain insight into your child’s difficulties and their impact on home and school life.
  • Define goals for therapy.
  • Opportunity to discuss your concerns about your child’s difficulties.
  • Tailored advice and strategies following the assessment on how best to help your child.

Ages and stages

Children usually follow a typical pattern of development when they learn to speak and communicate. This typical pattern of development can determine whether a referral to speech and language therapy is appropriate.


Speech and language therapy assessments

Some common assessments that speech and language therapists use include:

Arrange a Skype assessment (speech clinic) Skype logo

We are able to offer an assessment of your child's speech and language over Skype if this is a more suitable option for you. Our service is flexible and gives you the opportunity to reach us when this may not always be possible.


If there is an assessment you would like for your child that is not listed above, please do not hesitate to contact one of our speech and language therapists.

The speech and language therapist will use their expertise and experience to choose the best form of assessment for your child. If you would like to refer your child for an assessment then please email us at office@sltforkids.co.uk or call us on 0330 088 2298.
