Speech-language Therapists

Why a Speech Therapist?

Speech-language Therapists are experts in the assessment of the anatomy and physiology of feeding. Speech-language therapists use their specialist skills to assess:

- cranial nerves

- oral motor anatomy and skills

- oral sensory skills

- pharyngeal swallow

- oesophagel phase

- physiolgical response to feeding

- psychosocial responses to feeding

- general development

The results of the assessment indicate what treatment options would suit your child and/or if onward referrals are required. Recommendations may include strategies that you can complete independently at home, a block of therapy with a SLT in person or online, a referral to a more appropriate service provider or further medical investigations.
