Whilst on placement the individual will shadow a Speech and Language Therapist, observing the sessions the therapist has on that day,interacting with the child in the session.
There will be opportunities to discuss and ask questions about the varied and interesting role of a Speech and Language Therapist whilst on placement.
Upon confirmation of placement, the individual should make contact with the placement lead to confirm the start/finish times for the day.
To gain a comprehensive view of the Speech and Language Therapist role, we would recommend the individual also source a placement with the Adult Speech and Language Services.
