We recommend that you contact I CAN’s enquiry service by calling 020 7843 2544 to have a chat with a speech and language therapist, or email us: We can’t complete a speech and language therapy assessment over the phone, but we can have an informal chat about your concerns, give you some ideas of what to do next, and advise whether a full assessment by a speech and language therapist is recommended.

You can also speak to your health visitor or GP, who may be able to refer to a speech and language therapist for a full assessment if concerns are indicated.
