Who we are

Part of Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, the Speech and Language Therapy Service is dedicated to helping children reach their maximum communication potential.

Our team of Speech and Language Therapists have expert knowledge in speech, language and communication development. We specialise in helping children of all ages overcome difficulties with speech and language, as well as helping those who have problems with eating and swallowing.


The best people to help your child

All our Speech and Language Therapists are graduates with Honours and/or Masters Degrees in Speech and Language Therapy and are all registered with the Health Professions Council.

We also have a team of Communication Development Workers (CDW's), who have relevant experience working with young children and who complete our additional training. Focusing on babies, toddlers and nursery age children, they work closely with our Therapists to support parents and early years staff.  This has allowed us to expand our work into local communities, including home visits and our very popular parent/child interaction workshops called “Talking Tots”.

The Paediatric Speech & Language Therapy Manager is Fiona Taylor who is supported by our Senior Team Leaders: Rebecca Shirt; & Amanda Pryde-Jarman.


The Manager of our Enhanced Services is Michelle Morris who is supported by Fiona Taylor, also the Senior Enhanced Team Leader.
