Research shows that around 60% of young people in contact with youth justice services have speech, language and communication needs. This article reports on the most comprehensive survey of speech and language therapy in Scotland's CJS to date, reports levels of provision, and makes recommendations for future actions. It also provides hard evidence that what the agencies in Scotland's CJS are getting now from Speech and Language Therapists is increasingly valued.
