Speech and Language 
At Holy Name, we work closely with Chatterbugs, who visit school on a half-termly basis as well as with the NHS Speech & Language Service in Leeds. Any concerns that we have about any aspect of a child’s communication needs are acted upon. Parents are always consulted and next steps discussed. Please access the information below for information on the speech therapy company that we use and consent forms for their services.
