Philippa Cottam Communication Clinic

About the Small Talk Group

This clinic is led by Dr Judy Clegg, Helen Cameron & Carla Rohde
Speech and Language Therapists

The Small Talk group meets weekly throughout the year, including some school holidays.

It is aimed at parents/carers of children up to 5 years old, with any speech, language or communication need. The group combines group play and individual targeted work with an opportunity for parents to spend time chatting, exchanging ideas and suggestions, and supporting each other; there are also interactive sessions with invited guest speakers, covering a range of topics from using visual support at home to accessing portage services.

Members have usually heard of the group through word of mouth, and some children also access NHS Speech and Language Therapy services. While in the group, children will work with pre-registration Speech and Language Therapy students, supervised by qualified Speech and Language Therapists within the Department.

Sessions take place on Tuesday mornings from 10am-12pm.
