Speech and language therapy

Assessment and Treatment for speech difficulties

Speech therapists deals with both the sounds that people make and the language people use to express themselves. 

About speech and language therapy

Through our speech and language therapy services we provide treatment, support and care for adults and children who have difficulties with communication, or eating, drinking and swallowing.

The muscles we use to chew are very similar those we use to talk. So our therapists can assess and treat eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties, too. We will create a dedicated treatment programme for you. Through a combination of exercises, compensatory strategies and other techniques, speech and language therapy (SLT) can help people manage their condition. SLT may be recommended by an ear, nose and throat (ENT) consultant, a neurologist, neurosurgeon or rehabilitation specialist.
