The Adult Community Speech and Language Therapy Team (West Norfolk) is a small and busy team of fully qualified and registered Speech and Language Therapists and a part time Speech and Language Therapy Assistant. We work within the West Norfolk area. We offer expert assessment and management of communication and swallowing problems in adults over the age of 18. These could be associated with a range of acquired conditions such as brain injury or progressive neurological conditions.

The service will:

  • Work with the person and those around them to help them to understand all of their swallowing and communication needs.
  • Help people to make choices and set goals for improving and coping with their communication and swallowing problems.
  • Help people of varying abilities to work towards their goals, reducing harm, promoting quality of life and maximising their potential.
  • Enable people to use equipment and technology to support their communication needs.

This service can provide home visits.

Interpretation and translation services are available to people accessing the service.
