We have an open referral system and you can access the services in the following ways. Before making a referral you should look at the Leeds Speech and Language Therapy Service Guidelines for Referral for Children Aged 0-19 years to make sure that your referral is the right one.
Our referral guidelines can be located here.
For professional use only
Speech and Language Therapy screening tool
Our screening assessment tool uses pictures and tasks to help identify children who may have speech, language or communication difficulties. By completing the screen, you will know if the child would benefit from some extra support or whether they would meet the criteria for a referral to the Children's Speech and Language Therapy Service (CSLT).
To ensure you get the most out of screening tool, we have developed a video which talks you through completing the screen and provides you with some useful tips.
To access a copy of the screen or if you have any questions please contact our team on 01138433600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Across mainstream schools and clinics, we are experiencing, on average, an 18 week wait from receipt of referral to the phone call to a parent or school to book in an appointment. We are currently working towards reducing the waiting times to 12 weeks.
