Drop in Poster - Watford
What is a Drop-In Clinic?
The Drop-In Clinic is a session for parents/carers who have concerns about their child’s speech and/or language development. You will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns with a Speech and Language Therapist and Speech and Language Therapy Assistant. We will briefly assess your child, give you advice and agree a follow up plan if appropriate. The Drop-In Clinic is for children who are under the age of 5.
What to expect?
The Therapist/Assistant will find out about your child’s needs through observation, play and/or informal assessment. • You will have opportunity to confidentially discuss your concerns about your child with a Therapist/Assistant. Please be prepared to answer questions about your child’s general development. We may offer you a further apointment if more information is required. You may have to wait to be seen, depending on how busy it is. It is a ‘first come…first served’ system.
