    1.00 – 1.45

Save the date for part two of this webinar series on 20th March: ‘Putting children, young people and their parents/carers at the centre of decision-making’.

In 2016, the RCSLT embarked on an extensive review of the guidance provided to the almost two thirds of our members who work with children and young people. This was rooted in a clear mandate for change: in a complex landscape of competing pressures, there are both risks and opportunities for improving the outcomes for children and young people with SLCN and swallowing needs.

The RCSLT is delighted to host a webinar on the strategy for children’s services to highlight:

  • What the document is and how you can use it
  • What’s coming next for the strategy
  • How you can get involved

This webinar will be of interest to you if you:

  • Are a speech and language therapist working in children’s services
  • Manage children’s speech and language therapy services
  • Are another professional working in children’s services

Join Kamini Gadhok MBE, CEO at the RCSLT, and presenters:

  • Morag Dorward, Chair of the Strategy for Children’s Services Steering Group; and AHP Lead for Children’s Services for NHS Tayside
  • Lorna Baxter, Professional Guidance Manager, RCSLT

As they discuss the importance of placing children and young people at the heart of delivering quality speech and language therapy.
