Camden Speech and Language Therapy Service for Young People


CSYP works together with schools and families to support children (over the age of 11) with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) during their teenage years.

We are a team of specialist speech and language therapists often contracted by Camden schools. We help students with SLCN develop their independence, and confidence to communicate through developing the use of strategies and understanding of the staff team that work with them, as well as working with young people and their parents to get the best out of their communication.
