Speech & Language Therapy

Speech and language therapists diagnose and treat disorders of speech, voice and language, and problems with swallowing or feeding. If a total cure is not possible, they assist people to overcome or minimize the difficulties associated with these conditions and provide them with support. Although much of the work is with children people of all ages are treated. The problems patients have may be congenital, may be due to learning difficulties or special educational needs, or may have been caused by injury or by a medical condition like a degenerative illness such as Parkinson’s disease or a stroke.
