Many conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron Disease, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions can affect swallowing, saliva management, as well as causing speech difficulties and voice changes.
We will listen to your concerns and provide an individualised assessment based on your needs.
We can help you address difficulties with swallowing, speech, voice or saliva management in many ways.
Often education is the first step, so you understand why you are experiencing these changes.
We will provide you with strategies you can apply straightaway, whether your goal is to speak more clearly, control saliva, improve your voice or to explore alternative means of communication if necessary.
We can also provide therapy where this is indicated.
If your concern is swallowing, breathing or your cough strength we can show you how respiration training can help with any of these areas.
Therapy may be effective if your voice is not strong or you feel that your speech is not as clear as it used to be.
We are passionate about providing a wholistic approach to all of our clients and use treatments that are proven for your condition.
