Who are we?

The Outreach Service is delivered jointly with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.  The service comprises of:

  • a team of Specialist Speech and Language Teaching Assistants;
  • specialist Speech and Language Therapists;
  • an Educational Psychologist.

Who is the Service for?

The service is available to support primary and secondary aged children and young people who have been identified as:

  • experiencing a Speech and/or Language Disorder, and
  • the difficulty is having a significant impact upon the person’s development/progress. 

What do we do?

  • The service provides direct therapy and/or in class support for children and young people in their mainstream school.  This is delivered by the Teaching Assistant, under the direction and supervision of a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist.
  • The number of therapy/support sessions each child receives is dependent on the underlying clinical need and the intensity of the provision they require.

How are we accessed?

  • The service has referral criteria which must be demonstrated.
  • If it is felt that a child or young person is experiencing needs that meet the service criteria a request is considered by the County’s multi-agency ALN Moderation Panel on receipt of the necessary information.
  • Prior to such a request there will have been involvement from the Speech and Language Therapy Service (SALT).
