ONLINE SPEECH THERAPY FOR ADULTS/ELDERLY
Adults and the elderly can also receive online speech-language therapy. One advantage is that you can receive speech-language therapy in the comfort of your own home. You don't need to take a trip to a speech-language therapy practise. The only thing you need is a computer/laptop/tablet and an internet connection.
Furthermore, if you have multiple weekly appointments with several therapists, we can take a demanding component out of your schedule.
Speech-language therapy can help people after stroke, dementia, Parkinson's disease, people with Aphasia, Dysphagia, Dysarthria. The following problems may occur:
- Speech: unintelligible, speaking unclear, you started talking unclear after, for example, a cerebral infarction or a brain disorder, you have difficulties with certain letters, you suffer from speaking too quickly, stuttering/cluttering or other fluency problems
