ADULT SPEECH & LANGUAGE THERAPY DEPARTMENT
There are many reasons that as an adult you may experience Speech and Language difficulties. A Speech & Language Therapist works in a variety of areas in order to help an adult struggling with either their communication difficulties.
Do you identify with any of the following:
Difficulty with pronouncing certain words following a stroke, a traumatic brain injury or any other medical condition?
Do you feel that your facial muscles are weak, causing your speech to sound slurry or slushy?
Are you experiencing any difficulty with stammering or speaking at such a quick pace that you feel that no one understands you?
Do you suffer from severe stress, anxiety or trauma causing you to lose your voice?
Have you suffered a stroke and now are experiencing difficulty speaking and/or understanding language?
Have you been diagnosed with any of the following Motor Neurone Disease, Dementia, Head & Neck Cancer or Right Hemisphere damage?
If you identify with any of the above list or you have any other Speech, Language, Swallowing and Communication concerns then you we recommend you start with a Speech and Language Assessment.
London Speech Therapy provides a flexible approach to Speech and Language Assessments by using a mix of formal (standardised and norm-referenced) and informal assessments to gain an accurate picture of your communication needs, and this is then used to plan effective, accessible therapy for you.
