We run drop-in advice sessions in each children’s centre in Ealing once a term.
This is an opportunity for you to meet a speech and language therapist to seek advice about your child’s speech, language and communication development.
The speech and language therapist will attend the centres’ normal Stay and Play session. You don’t need to book.
Please note, referrals are not made at drop-in sessions.
