Bedfordshire Adult Speech and Language Therapy (S&LT)

The Adult Speech and Language Therapy (S&LT) Service provides assessment and treatment for adults (16 years and over) who have an acquired difficulty with speech, language, dysfluency (stammering), voice (including transgender voice) or swallowing.

Training, as well as written and verbal handovers are offered to significant others and to those working with adults in the hospital, in residential care and other settings. This enables everyone involved with the adult to provide an appropriate level of support.
