Adult speech therapy is intended for you if you have difficulty in producing or understanding speech or have difficulty in swallowing. We diagnose speech, language, communication and swallowing disorders and determine their level of severity. We will also establish how your symptoms affect your daily communication and coping.
We will inform the customer and their loved ones of the examination results and, when needed, prepare a plan for rehabilitation. Through rehabilitation, we aim to improve your speech production and understanding, reading, writing and swallowing. We can provide instructions for food and eating habits that make swallowing easier. If your communication disorder is severe, we will look for ways to support and correct your speech.
You need a referral to become our customer. You can get a referral from the Geriatric Outpatient Clinic, your own health station, home care services or hospital ward.
