Speech and Language Support


Evelina Children’s Hospital Community Speech and Language Therapy Service

This is a service for children and young people in Lambeth and Southwark. You can find out more about the service and what is offered by clicking here

The team of speech and language therapists and assistants offer specialist advice, assessment and help for children and young people (0-19 years) who have difficulties with any aspect of their communication, including:

  • speech sounds
  • talking
  • attention and listening
  • understanding
  • interacting.

The therapists work with babies and children who have eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties. They work with the people who spend the most time with the child. This may include parents, carers, family members, school staff and nursery staff.
