Assessments

Assessments we provide

Our speech and language therapists offer a range of assessments for individuals with speech, language and communication difficulties.

An assessment will be carried out to identify what type of speech, language or communication difficulties an individual has and why.

From assessment results, observations and discussions with the individual, their family and other professionals the speech and language therapist will be able to provide a detailed report and a suitable management option.

An assessment report will provide detailed information on the type of communication difficulty the individual has, the severity of their difficulty and any advice or recommendations for treatment.

At SLT UK we will provide assessments at a time and location to suit your needs; we can provide assessments in the clinic, home and education settings.
