Speech and Language Therapy Service (Adult Intellectual Disabilities)

We provide specialist assessment, formulation, therapy, support and advice for people with speech, language and communication needs or dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). We also work with their carers, support staff and other teams.

Our care includes specialist learning and development to educate others around safe eating and drinking and communication techniques.

Our specialist assessments include comprehension of language, especially in relation to people's capacity to understand information, and Autistic Spectrum Disorder diagnostic assessments. 

We are accessible to adults with intellectual disabilities and we provide a communication aid service for adults with developmental disabilities.

We work with Community Learning Disability Teams and Intensive Community Assessment and Treatment Teams across Nottinghamshire County and in Nottingham City and we also provide some inpatient support.
