The speech and language therapists based at Serennu Children’s Centre are part of the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Paediatric Special Needs speech and language therapy team.
The speech and language therapy team work closely with parents to enable them to develop their child’s communication skills through working on specific targets that can be incorporated into their daily life. The speech and language therapist may provide advice to the child’s nursery/school. The therapist may also work with other professionals including occupational therapists and physiotherapists to provide joint assessments or interventions.
The speech and language therapist also works with children who have eating, drinking and swallowing problems. The therapist, in liaison with the multi-disciplinary team, will assess the child’s eating and drinking difficulties and plan appropriate intervention. The therapist needs to ensure that the child’s eating and drinking skills are safe and effective.
