Northumberland County Council

The Speech, Language and Communication Team of Northumberland County Council offer bespoke support for children and young people whose spoken language difficulties are affecting their attainment and progress in school.
 

We offer impartial information, advice and support to families of children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities.

The service is free and confidential. We also support children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities up to the age of 25.

  • improving your understanding of the special educational needs system
  • listening to your concerns
  • helping you to express your views
  • helping you to prepare for meetings and attending them with you, if required
  • helping you with the paperwork
  • helping explore the options for a child or young person’s education
  • putting you in touch with other support organisations
