Speech and language therapists are involved in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions that can affect speech, language, voice, swallowing or communication.
Who we treat
Speech and language problems may arise as a result of some of the following conditions:
- Parkinson's disease
- multiple sclerosis
- motor neurone disease
- head and neck cancers
- acute trauma
What to expect
At your consultation, we'll run through your medical history. A Speech and Language Therapist will then conduct a specialised assessment of the issue you're experiencing. This will help them develop a treatment plan. You may need to be referred for additional tests for us to be able to fully diagnose the issue..
Not all services are covered by health insurance. To find out if you're covered, contact your health insurance provider before your visit.
If you do not have health insurance or your health plan does not cover the full cost, you will need to pay on the day of your visit.
You might be able to claim fees on your insurance.
If you need to submit an insurance excess or pay inpatient fees after a stay at the Hermitage Clinic, you can pay your bill online.
