What to expect

Consultative role

Our speech and language therapists can offer a consultative role as part of the treatment process. A consultative role will focus on giving advice and recommendations to the individual, their carer and other professionals involved in their care.

What will a consultative role involve?

Unlike one to one and group therapy where the individual receives direct input from the speech and language therapist, a consultative role will focus on providing advice and recommendations for the individual, their carer and others involved in their care. Following an initial assessment the speech and language therapist will be able to advise or recommend on how to manage the individuals speech, language or eating and drinking needs. A speech and language therapist will often combine a consultative role with other types of treatment e.g. one to one therapy.

Who can benefit from a consultative role?

There are many different people who can benefit from a consultative role. The speech and language therapist can provide advice, support and recommendations for a variety of people involved in the individuals care, these can include:

  • The individual.
  • The individuals carer or parent.
  • The individuals friends and family.
  • Medical or health care professionals.
  • Teachers or other educational staff.
  • Care home staff.
  • There are many types of consultative services available in speech and language therapy, this will vary for each individual and will depend on their specific speech, language and communication needs and also their underlying condition or disorder. A consultative role will include giving advice, support or recommendations on the individuals speech, language or eating and drinking needs.

    What are the benefits of consultative services?
