Adult Speech and Language Services

The Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) department provides a service for patients who are aged 18 years and above. These patients generally have acquired communication and/or swallowing difficulties.
We provide intensive therapy sessions at the clinic as well as caregiver training in order to effectively assist the patients at home. We aim to provide evidence-based services which are dependent on the specific individualized needs of adults who experiencing acquired speech, language, communication or swallowing difficulties.
Therapists work in a collaboration with the patient, their families/caregivers and with other professionals in order to reduce the impact of these often isolating difficulties on the patient’s wellbeing and their ability to actively and independently participate in daily life.

We are able to assist with the following acquired communication and/or swallowing difficulties:

  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Voice therapy (i.e. working with those who have damaged vocal and/voice disorders)
  • Fluency disorders (i.e. stuttering and/or stammering)
  • Dysphagia and/or eating difficulties
