FAQs

Speech and language therapy helps with issues related to speech, communication, and swallowing. Causes include neurological conditions like strokes, speech disorders, or learning difficulties.

This depends on your needs. We offer programmes tailored to adults and children, so speak to us today to learn more.

Speech and language problems are often persistent for children. Early intervention is important to encourage a child’s language and communication development as they get older.

Talking to your child, reading to them regularly, and introducing new vocabulary are good ways to help your child with speech and language development.
