We need to talk: Access to speech and language therapy

11 June 2019 – Children’s Commissioner

Anne Longfield, the Children’s Commissioner for England, has published a new report “We need to talk: Access to speech and language therapy“, to highlight on spending on speech and language therapy services (SLT) for children across the country to help identify where children who need support are falling through the gaps.

This report is the first time data has been brought together to show how much local areas spend on SLT services. This was previously hidden – there is no publicly available, reliable information about what is being spent, and there is no single body to hold to account for that spending.
