What to expect

Neurological Problems

Neurological problems occur as a result of damage to the nervous system, such as injury to the brain, spinal cord or nerves. Neurological problems can be acquired as a result of sudden injury to the nervous system e.g. a stroke or head injury. Neurological problems can also be progressive where the problems will worsen over time due to deterioration of the nervous system.

Neurological problems can result in many different difficulties which will be dependent on the area of the nervous system that has been affected. Neurological problems can result in difficulties with muscle function, speech, language (both expressive and receptive), swallowing and social communication.
