What is Speech and Language Therapy?

Speech and language therapists (SLT) support people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).

Speech and language therapists work with children, adolescents and adults who experience a developmental or an acquired communication difficulty or eating and drinking difficulty.

Speech and Language Therapists have the skills to assess the levels of speech, language and communication difficulty and to work directly with specific therapy targets to help the client overcome such difficulties.

Regular and targeted therapy can help clients achieve increased access to education/the world of work, as well as increased functional access within their local community and day to day lives.
