What is speech and language therapy?

Speech and language therapy provides identification, assessment, treatment and support of a broad range of difficulties regarding speech, language, communication and swallowing. Speech and language therapy is a service for adults and children, but here at SLT UK we provide a specialised service to support adults with speech, language, communication and swallowing needs.

Speech and language therapy helps to diagnose, prevent and rehabilitate an individual’s speech, language and communication difficulties. Speech and language therapy enables people with communication disorders to achieve their maximum potential to communicate.

Speech and language therapy also enables individuals with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties to eat and drink as safely and independently as possible.

A speech and language therapist is a qualified and registered health professional who is trained and experienced in assessing and treating individuals with communication needs. Speech and language therapists specialise in investigating and treating disorders of speech, language, communication, eating and drinking difficulties.

Conditions we treat

Speech and language therapists work closely with other professionals in health and education, and with families to maximise the outcome of the individual who is experiencing communication difficulties.

Speech and language therapy can help with many conditions that affect speech, language, communication and swallowing.

At SLT UK nothing is more important to us than each of our patients.
