Group therapy at SLT UK
Our speech and language therapists can provide group therapy for individuals with speech, language and communication difficulties. Our speech and language therapists can also provide group programmes for parents and carers regarding an individual’s speech, language and communication needs.
Group treatment involves a group of patients or a group of parents or carers. Group treatment will often involve individuals with similar speech, language or communication needs however this will vary depending on the purpose of the group. Groups vary from smaller more intense groups to larger groups. Larger groups may often be run by two speech and language therapists.
