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, please fill in this request form below and email it to 

Screening tool request form

If you have any questions please contact our team on 01138433600.


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.

As part of the response to the coronavirus, our service is currently closed for support for speech, language and communication. Children’s Speech and Language Therapy staff have been redeployed to support with frontline NHS services for those who require urgent care. We are continuing to accept referrals and you may receive a telephone contact,  however, we will not be able to offer your child an appointment for some time. Speech and Language Therapists who support children and young people with swallowing difficulties will continue to provide a service to these high priority cases.
