Speech Therapy

Speech and language therapy (also known as Speech Therapy) provides treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing.

Speech and language therapists (SLTs) are allied health professionals – in Ireland, they are known as part of the Health and Social Care Professionals (HSCPs) profession.

Some general information on SLT can be found on the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists (RCSLT) site.
