Private Speech Therapy for Adults

Speech Therapist Lincolnshire Speech Therapist for Adults 

Why do people need a speech therapist for adults?

Adults may need speech and language therapy input for many different reasons. For example:

  • People may develop a voice disorder at any time in their life.

  • Adults may develop speech or language difficulties following a brain injury, such as a stroke or a head injury, or if they have brain cancer or tumours. These conditions can also cause changes in communication style (cognitive communication) and swallowing difficulties.

  • Adults can develop speech or swallowing difficulties if they have a progressive neurological condition, such as Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Huntington’s Disease or Motor Neuron Disease.

  • Adults may develop dementia which can cause language and swallowing difficulties. There are rare forms of dementia where people first present with language difficulties (such as Primary Progressive Aphasia).

  • Adults may develop swallowing difficulties secondary to other health conditions. 

Speech Therapy Lincs Ltd provides speech therapy for adults with communication and swallowing difficulties. Please see our ‘Services’ pages for more details about the services provided.

With private speech therapy, where and when you have therapy is your choice

With a private speech therapist, you get to choose when and where you are seen, as well as how often. You will be advised as to how much therapy you may require.   

You can have therapy in your home, your workplace or our clinic. Our clinic is in the West End of Lincoln; parking is available. 

Speech Therapy Lincs Ltd can also in-reach to hospitals, providing you have gained consent from the Consultant.

You could also receive input via online therapy (teletherapy); this involves receiving input over a service such as Sykpe or Zoom. Online therapy can be useful for those who wish to access Speech Therapy Lincs Ltd’s service yet live further away or find it difficult to travel.
