Supporting people with dementia
Dementia can cause a range of difficulties in relation to communication, safe eating and drinking. Speech and language therapists support people with dementia and their carers by assessing their needs and delivering direct interventions to manage their problems.
Children and young people
Communication difficulties put children at greater risk of poor literacy, mental health issues and poorer employment outcomes in adulthood. Speech and language therapy is a vital service that improves children’s language and communication skills, and aids their personal development.
