SPEECH THERAPY FOR ADULTS

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 or any swallowing 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, slushy?

  • Are you experiencing any difficulty with stammering or speaking a such a quick pace that you feel that no one understands you?

  • Has severe stress, anxiety or trauma caused 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 Neuron Disease, Dementia, Head & Neck Cancer or Right hemisphere damage?

  • Are you experiencing difficulty with any eating or swallowing?

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 this is then used to plan effective, accessible therapy for you.

Speech and language assessments can take place at our Harley Street clinic (Central London) or at your home.
