The Speech Centre Wexford

Your local speech and language therapists in Wexford

Our clinic is located in Suite 2 of the Redmond Medical Centre, which is in the centre of Wexford town opposite the railway station and easily accessed from all surrounding areas. A team of medical services are located in Redmond Medical Centre, including GPs, audiologists, and the Beacon Clinic, and we are proud to provide Speech and Language Therapy alongside these practitioners.

Car parking is available right outside the door, or there are various other parking options within a five minute walk from the clinic. The Wexford branch of The Speech Centre is run by a local Speech and Language Therapist who works in a bright, cosy, well-equipped therapy room. You will have access to your own waiting room where you can relax before the Speech and Language Therapist welcomes you to your appointment. We cater for both children and adults of all ages and abilities in our clinic. Please feel free to give us a call on 0852121021 if you have any questions at all.

Overall, I would say my experience with the Speech Centre has been one which has encouraged, helped and benefited me greatly. The approach is both gentle and affirming, yet has also enabled me to journey much further along the road of control than I would ever have imagined possible. I now have more hope, more control and can see that I should not be defined by this speech impediment.
