Speech/Language/Swallowing disorders assessed and treated include:

Aphasia/Dysphasia – disorders of language

Aphasia affects your ability to speak and understand what others say. It can also affect your ability to read and write.

Apraxia – disorder of motor speech programming

Apraxia is when you find it difficult to move the muscles in your face, mouth or throat in the order you need to when you’re speaking.

Dysarthria – disorders of speech

Dysarthria happens when you’re not able to control the muscles in your face, mouth and throat very well, so it's difficult to speak clearly. (Stroke Association)

Dysphagia – disorder of swallowing

Swallowing is a complicated task that needs your brain to coordinate many different muscles. If your stroke damages the parts of your brain that do this, then this will affect your ability to swallow. Swallowing problems are also known as dysphagia. (Stroke Association)

Prolonged Disorder of Consciousness (PDOC)

Sudden onset of loss of consciousness following a profound brain injury and lasting for a least 4 weeks following the onset. (Royal College of Physicians)

Cognitive Communication Disorders

Communication is a complex process, which involves many aspects of thinking and social skills. If brain injury impairs any of these skills then it can affect the ability to communicate successfully.

Alternative/Augmentative Communication (AAC)

This could be high tech or low tech and involve communication boards, alphabet charts, total communication strategies, apps or specialist technology.

We specialise in assessing and treating complex disorders of speech, language and consciousness with the client and their family to achieve meaningful goals.

We work with adults from the age of 18 upwards.
