Drop Ins

Informal drop in sessions for anyone with a child aged between 0-5. Parents can pop in to chat about their child’s speech and language development, no appointment necessary.

There will be a Speech and Language Therapist Specialist in Complex Needs available in SOME Drop-In Sessions – please look on the dates list for which sessions they will attend and sign-post families whose children have more complex needs (such as families who have previously accessed SLT through the Child Development Centre). 

Awaiting Dates


Confident Communicators
:

Short parent information session on ‘Language Development and How To Help.’ Where a creche is provided, the session also includes a chance for parents to practise with their child in a short play session. If a crèche is available, places must be booked in advance – contact details below. 

Parents/ Carers can attend the information session without their children (and in that case, no need to use crèche)

Talk and Explore:
 

These are play sessions within ‘Stay and Play’ Sessions at Children’s Centre with Speech and Language Therapists. They are a good opportunity for parents to learn new songs, pick up tips for talking and playing with their children. They are open to all.

This can be a helpful session to attend as a follow-up to Confident Communicators, to chat to an SLT about how it is going, now that parents are using the strategies at home with their child.
