Communication is the ability to express and receive messages. Communication can be expressive or receptive (understanding). Communication can also be verbal, written or non-verbal (body language etc.). A communication problem can affect any part of this.
Speech and language therapy is extremely beneficial for individuals with communication problems. Our speech and language therapists will help to improve and support an individual’s communication.
Speech and language therapy can involve a variety of treatment options and will depend on the specific difficulties of the client. Our speech and language therapists will provide individualised treatment plans tailored to the individual’s specific needs and abilities. See below for the types of communication problems we treat at SLT UK.
Comprehension problems, also known as receptive difficulties are when people have difficulties understanding written or spoken information. Our speech and language therapists provide support and treatment for patients with comprehension problems.
An expressive problem is a difficulty in expressing thoughts or messages clearly and effectively. This can either be written expression or verbal expression. Our speech and language therapists can support patients with expressive problems.
A receptive problem is a difficulty in understanding others messages properly. These can either be auditory or visual messages. Our speech and language therapists can support patients with receptive problems.
Processing problems occur when the brain cannot process auditory or visual information correctly. Hearing is not affected, however people who have processing problems have difficulties processing and identifying different sounds and complex language.
Production problems, also known as expressive difficulties are when people have difficulties expressing information. Our speech and language therapists provide support and treatment for patients with production problems.
