Making a referral

If you are worried about a child’s communication or their eating and drinking, complete the referral checklist. This will help you decide if we are the service to help you.
If you do want to make a referral to our service, download our referral form If you are a parent, we recommend you ask your child’s teacher or health visitor to help you fill in the referral form so that they can provide additional information
We may not accept all referrals. Some of the reasons we may refuse a referral include:
  1. You haven’t given us enough information
  2. You live outside the area we cover
  3. We do not offer a service for the kind of difficulty described

Return the forms by email to:


Return the referral form to us by post:

If your child is at school or nursery, print off this placement letter and give it to your child’s teacher. Ask them to complete it and send it to us.  This will give us more information about your child and the help they need.
