Thanks to all for the many expressions of interest in our Speech and Language Pilot. We now have lots of potential candidates who we are contacting with more information, so we do not require any further enquiries at this time as there were only limited places available.

We will update with the outcome of the pilot and any other opportunities later in the Spring.


Autism Anglia is excited to be offering a pilot Speech and Language Therapy Assessment service for children and young adults aged 21 and under. This is available for a limited time.

Prior to assessment we will ask you to complete a detailed case history form and to share any relevant existing reports and documents for review. If assessment is indicated as beneficial, this will be with one of our highly specialist Speech and Language Therapists in our assessment room at our Head Office in the heart of Colchester.

How it works:

You should allow around 90 minutes for the assessment, which will evaluate a range of Speech, Language and Communication areas. Assessment may include formal and informal assessment methods, depending on age and abilities. Our skilled Speech and Language Therapists strive to tailor the assessment process to the individual whilst ensuring that it is a calm but also engaging experience.

Following assessment, we will write a highly detailed, formal report that will include specific recommendations for educational settings, as well as advice for home and signposting to other useful sources of help or information.

After the report is received, there is an additional option to arrange a follow up meeting with the educational setting, to take place online via MS Teams, to discuss the findings and recommendations. This is charged for separately.

Currently, this is an assessment only service with no capacity to offer therapeutic intervention to support identified Speech and Language Therapy needs.
