Referral Guidance

The children’s speech and language therapy team provide support to children and young people aged 0-18 years who have communication and/or swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) which affects eating or drinking.

We assess children and young people’s speech, language and communication and eating and drinking skills and work with them alongside their parents, carers and other professionals  to help them use their skills to the best of their ability.  Please go to our main website, https://www.southwestyorkshire.nhs.uk/barnsley-childrens-speech-language-therapy-service/home/ for further information including:
