If you decide to go ahead with speech and language therapy, you will be seen in your own home. The initial appointment will usually be for an assessment of the communication/swallowing difficulty and the number of treatment sessions will vary largely between each client depending on their needs.
What do we charge?
We offer you a free initial consultation over the phone to discuss your needs.

Speech Advance clinicians were lucky enough to attend a study day at Birmingham Library. It was run by the Central Neuro Clincial Excellence Network and was based on Reading Comprehension and Dysgraphia in adults with acquired neurologcial impairments. So many people we see will report changes and difficulites with their reading and writing and many will have specific aims and targets around these concerns. So it was an amazing opportunity to go to the event and to listen and learn from specialist clinicians. It was such an informative day and we can't wait to put everything we have learnt into practise!! Read more >
