About us

We offer support to children and young people who experience difficulties with speech, language, communication, talking, and stammering, as well with children and young people who have eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties. We work in partnership with children and young people, their families and other professionals to reduce the impact of speech, language and communication difficulties, to allow them to participate more fully in daily life.

In north Devon our team is made up of:

  • 1 Speech and Language Therapy Team Lead
  • 5 Speech and Language Therapists
  • 3 Speech and Language Therapy Assistants

You can refer a child or young person to us by using the Single Point of Access and making a Request for Service.
