Speech and Language Therapy Service (Adult Intellectual Disabilities)
We provide specialist assessment, formulation, therapy, support and advice for people with speech, language, communication needs or dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). We also work with their carers, support staff and other teams.
This also includes specialist learning and development to enable others around safe eating and drinking and communication techniques.
Specialist assessments include comprehension of language, especially in relation to capacity to understand information and Autistic Spectrum Disorder diagnostic assessments. This also includes specialist communication aid service for people with developmental disabilities.
We are accessible to adults with intellectual disabilities and provide a communication aid service for adults with developmental disabilities.
We are based with Community Learning Disability Teams and Intensive Community Assessment and Treatment Teams across Nottinghamshire County and in Nottingham City, as well as providing some inpatient support.
