Adult Speech and Language Therapy Service

The Adult Speech and Language Therapy Service provides assessment, advice, treatment, education and support for people with acquired swallowing and communication difficulties including understanding, speaking, reading and writing. The service works closely with family and carers to provide information, advice and support.

Swallowing and voice problems need referral from a health care professional but people can self-refer for communication problems.

People may be seen for individual sessions and/or group sessions.

The groups offered include groups to practice language skills and consolidate the use of communication strategies, groups to practice advanced language skills, and groups to build up confidence and provide mutual support.

 My Word is an aphasia support group which meets to enjoy others company, laugh and share experiences. Anyone living with aphasia in the borough of Hounslow is welcome to attend.

My Word is currently being held at Isleworth Working Menís Club 109 St Johns Road off Twickenham Road TW7 6PN
