Specialist Speech and Language Therapy Services
Providing comprehensive speech and language therapy services to children and adults, Susan Roe Speech Language Therapy Services offers individualised programmes in a range of settings including clinic, home or school. Web-based options are also available.
Hoarse, whispered, strained or weak voicing, difficulty with vocal projection or vocal fatigue are some symptoms of voice disorders.
Some voice disorders are caused by vocal overuse or misuse and can occur in individuals who depend on their voice for work, including teachers, business people, actors and singers.
We provide voice assessment and intervention programmes for adults and children with voice disorders. The voice assessment includes an analysis of how the voice is being used. Clients are usually referred following an examination by an ear, nose and throat specialist doctor.
Voice therapy programmes include vocal health education and training on how to best use your voice for a particular situation.
Speech and Language Therapy for Children
Assessment and treatment of a range of speech and language difficulties are available. We complete an initial assessment and then provide programmes for all ages of children including preschoolers and adolescents in the areas of speech sound disorders/unclear speech, understanding and expressing information, social skills, as well as hearing impairments and voice disorders.
We recognise the significant impact these challenges have on your child’s future and our aim is to support children to communicate to the best of their ability.
We provide services at home, school or pre-school or in the clinic and can offer blocks of therapy.
Neurological events such as stroke and brain injury can result in communication disorders. These disorders can include unclear speech, quiet voice, difficulty understanding and expressing language, impaired reading and writing, and difficulties with social interactions. Some people may also have difficulty in swallowing.
Speech-language therapy aims to facilitate improvements in these areas, resulting in improved participation in life. We offer an assessment of overall communication skills, followed by an intervention programme developed for your daily needs.
We also provide swallowing assessment and intervention programmes.
Speech Improvement and Accent Modification
We offer a programme to address speech clarity and pronunciation issues which may be associated with English as a second language, hearing impairment or confidence in communication. These speech difficulties can hinder progress in school or career.
Our assessment and intervention programme is designed to improve the overall clarity of speech and effectiveness of communication for your everyday life to help achieve your goals.
We provide a variety of services including professional supervision, locum cover, service development, and workshops/education.
