SEND Local Offer for Coventry - Speech and Language Therapy - Adults

Speech and Language Therapy - Adults

The role of the Speech and Language Therapy - Adults Team is to assess and treat adults who have swallowing, speech, language, voice, stammering and/or communication problems. People may find they have one or more of these difficulties.

This is a self-referring service.

There can be many reasons why people can have difficulties with speech, language and/or swallowing.

For example, someone has had a stroke (CVA), suffered from a head injury, or if they have a degenerative neurological condition such as Parkinson's Disease, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Huntingdon's Disease or Motor Neurone Disease.

We work with adults who may have one or more of the following difficulties and who have a Coventry GP:

  • Producing speech and using speech
  • Stammering/stuttering
  • Understanding language - spoken and/or written down by other people
  • Using language e.g. finding the right words to say, or finding the right words to write down
  • Voice problems e.g. a hoarse or croaky voice
  • Swallowing food and/or drinks and/or medications

For more information, please visit the Speech and Language Therapy - Adults website.

Someone with a learning disability who has swallowing problems should refer to our Community Learning Disability Team.
