Learning Disabilities Speech & Language Therapy
We are Speech and Language Therapists working as part of the Community Learning Disability Teams.
We are committed to providing person centred assessment, advice and support to people with Learning Disabilities (LD) and their family/ carers.
What We Do
We offer assessment, advice and support for adults with LD and their families/carers in a number of areas including:
- Speech, language and communication
- Social skills
- Eating and drinking
- Staff/ carer training
- Easy Read information
Sometimes we may signpost or refer you to another service which may be more suited to meeting your needs.
Where Do We Work?
We can see people in different community settings for example:
- Person's own home
- Day service or work placement
- Supported living or shared lives placement
- Replacement Care Services
We have links with the Speech and Language Therapists who work in the hospitals in our area but Learning Disability Therapists do not see people in hospital as inpatients or outpatients.
