The Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) team offer support to Hertfordshire settings where a parent or professional has concerns about a child or young person’s development in this area.
What we do
All professionals work together to support a 3 tier model of service for SLCN - universal, targeted and specialist services, for all children and young people. This includes advice and guidance to schools and settings (universal); early intervention for children at risk of not learning or socialising (targeted) and specialist support for those identified as needing assessment and intervention from the Speech and Language Therapy service.

All Hertfordshire schools have a link to an Educational Psychologist, specialist advisory teachers and a Speech and Language Therapist.
