Parents / Families

You can use this section to find out about:

Groups that run in your local community that provide useful support for you; or for you and your child together. Groups are run in various locations across Edinburgh and the Lothians and most of these groups are free of charge.

Useful websites that provide information and advice on child development; and ideas for use at home to support your child’s speech and language development.

Frequently Asked Questions with links, and where to access further support if required.

Making contact with your local Speech and Language Therapy department
If you have looked at the ‘Typical Development’ and ‘Tips and Info’ section of this website and still have ongoing concerns about your child’s communication, then you can speak to your Health Visitor, GP or staff in your child’s early years setting. A parent/carer or a professional can request  assistance from Speech and Language Therapy. You can find out more about this in this section.
