South west Essex Community Services - Speak Easy

Here at Speech and Language Therapy we are launching an exciting new service called 'Speak Easy' and are inviting you to be part of it!

What is Speak Easy?
Speak Easy is an open access phone line run by Speech and Laguage Therapists to offer advice and support to parents and people working with children who may have some speech and language difficulties. It is primarily for children who are not already known to the team, although can be used for any child living in the South West Essex area.

Speak Easy will be particularly useful for parents or professionals who may have some concerns, but are not sure whether to make a referral to the team.

When can I call?

The phone line will be operating every Monday (except for bank holidays), from 1.00 - 4.00pm. If you call outside of these times you will hear a message telling yoou when the service is next available.

What will happen when I call?

The Speech and Language Therapist will ask you to describe your concerns ans may ask you some brief questions to get more information about what help is needed. The phoen line is not an assessment service, but rather a point of access for advice and support about what to do next.
