Nottinghamshire has excellent support and training available for practitioners, including; free training, additional sold services, free networks and a language lead accreditation scheme.
Support and advice is readily available from Children’s Centres, which all have language leads and speech and language therapists linked to them. Your early years specialist teachers will also be able to help.
The Nottinghamshire Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service now has a telephone advice line, which has replaced the old referral system. Staff can make referrals as well as getting advice about children’s communication skills.
The advice line is open Tuesdays 1:00pm - 4:30pm and Thursdays 9:00am- 12.30pm.
