Speech and Language Therapy for Adults

Speech and language therapists (SLTs) are allied health professionals. They work closely with carers and other professionals, such as nurses, occupational therapists and doctors.
In our work with adult patients, we can help with:

  • Communication or eating and swallowing problems following neurological impairments and degenerative conditions, including stroke, head injury, Parkinson's disease and dementia
  • Stammering
