Speech & Language Therapy

Speech & Language Therapy

The Edinburgh Practice Speech and Language Therapy Service is a specialised service tailored to your child’s specific communication needs. We are a team of passionate Speech and Language Therapists who provide dedicated support for children and young people to reach their speech, language and communication potential. We utilise the most current and comprehensive therapy methods, evidence-based programmes and research techniques to achieve successful outcomes.

Our Expertise

We support a wide range of speech, language and communication needs including:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder and social communication difficulties
  • Developmental language disorder (DLD)
  • Language difficulties
  • Speech, language and communication needs which are secondary to another diagnosis or need
  • Speech sound difficulties

The Assessment Process

Initial Consultation

The first stage of Speech and Language Therapy assessment involves meeting with a child or young person and providing a broad assessment of their speech, language and communication skills. This will involve play or an interaction-based session, which may involve observations of parent/child interactions, and a discussion around what the concerns are and the impact of these. This will allow the Speech and Language Therapist to make recommendations on what is best for your child going forward and how you can support them in the most helpful way.

What will happen following the initial assessment?

As every child and young person is an individual with individualised needs, it is not possible to list all potential outcomes from the initial assessment. However, recommendations may include:

  • Further assessment
  • 1:1 speech and language therapy sessions
  • A speech and language therapy programme for school
  • Reassurance, advice and consultation to parents and/or teaching staff/professionals supporting a child or young person


Comprehensive assessment of Speech, Language and Communication Skills

This assessment provides a more detailed, in-depth assessment of a child/young person’s speech, language and communication skills, including receptive and expressive language, social communication and interaction, and speech sounds.

The assessment will involve a combination of:

  • Formal and informal assessment, use of standardised assessment tools where appropriate
  • Questionnaires are sent to family and education (where appropriate) to gather collateral information
  • Discussion to establish the nature and impact of any challenges
  •  If a school observation is required this will be discussed with you at your appointment

To provide detailed feedback, the therapist will collate and analyse the assessment findings. A detailed report and feedback will then be provided, this will include any relevant recommendations and next steps. This assessment can be used to assess for Developmental Language Disorder.

🎉We are happy to be welcoming our new Play Therapist to Team TEP, Ellen Stevens! 
🧸Ellen specialises in psychodynamic play therapy with children between the ages of 3 and 11, with experience supporting children with a range of support needs such as anxiety, difficulties with emotional regulation, ADHD, autism, communication difficulties, experience of bullying and self-esteem challenges.
💛 Ellen’s therapeutic approach is child-centred and non-directive, meaning the child leads the way in their play and chooses toys and activities as they wish. She responds to the child’s lead in a non-judgemental and attuned way to help further deepen the child’s exploration of their inner-world through play.
