ADULT SERVICES

Our adult services are dedicated to supporting adults with communication, cognitive, and/or swallowing difficulties to reach and maintain their full potential. We work closely with clients, their family, caregivers, and other health professionals. We provide flexible options for individual or small group therapy, as well as training for individuals, family, caregivers and carers.
