Full assessment and intervention for communication disorders
(speech intelligibility, expressive and receptive language, higher language functions)

Communication changes are part of the natural ageing process, particularly in light of the increasing medical needs and illnesses associated with ageing. While speech clarity may be affected by natural muscle degeneration, specific medical conditions often also have a large impact on both speech clarity and language processing (understanding what is said, and expressing a coherent response).

Difficulties can range from being unable to find the right word when you’re speaking, to having no speech or understanding at all. Parkinson’s disease, MND, stroke, head injury, dementia, MS and cancers are just some of the conditions that our Speech and Language Therapists can help to manage.
