To ensure our service is of the highest possible standard, all of our speech and language therapists are highly sorted and undergo, regular training, appraisals, reviews and reflections to better improve their practise. Each of our speech and language therapists are able to provide a wide range of detailed assessments and therapy interventions for a range of conditions and difficulties.
