Communication Rehabilitation (Neurological)

For adults who experience communication difficulties due to Aphasia, Parkinson’s disease, Motor Neurone disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Dysarthria or other neurological condition. The program involves individual therapy and partner/carer training and support for people with communication difficulties of neurological origin. 

The service runs weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays. We are now taking bookings for 2018.


Adult General Communication Skills

The General Communication Skills service provides a screening service to check your general communication skills and identify any areas of speech or language that may impact on your professional and/or personal life. The screening process covers aspects of communication such as articulation, language, voice and fluency, amongst other things. 

Individual follow up sessions can be arranged if required. The program has a particular focus on voice and voice care and therefore is particularly suitable for people who depend on verbal communication in their professional roles (eg teachers, coaches, actors, singers etc). 

As well as individual sessions, this program offers group Voice Care seminars which provide information, training and strategies to help you protect your voice from damage
