Making effective referrals

The Communication Trust has developed a series of factsheets to help settings plan and write effective referrals to speech and language therapy services. The factsheets cover the decision-making process for making referrals, what to consider about the child or young person, and how to build a speech, language and communication profile.

The Communication Trust would like to thank Parisha Chadha, Carrie Cloete, Kirsty Mansfield and Barnet SLT service for sharing their ‘SLT Decision Tree’, which formed the starting point for these factsheets.
