This research looked at collaboration between the education and health services in the delivery of speech and language therapy services to children. The study was undertaken in five areas across England and interviews were conducted with therapists and assistants, classroom teachers and assistants, support teachers, educational psychologists, headteachers, parents, purchasers, senior NHS Trust personnel and education advisers. The report provides an opportunity to put on record, for discussion and debate, how collaboration is being established and factors that will encourage further progress.
