Speech and Language Therapy: Its Potential Role in CAMHS



This review examines the implications of a recent systematic review of speech and language therapy interventions for child mental health services. The premise is that communication skills and mental health are closely related and that intervention in the one field may have an impact on skills and achievement in the other. The paper begins by discussing what we know about the relationship between speech/language and behavioural difficulties; it then reports results from the review, before examining the implications for practice and policy.
