Speech therapy

Speech therapy is provided by a licensed speech therapist. A referral is always needed before visiting one of our speech therapists. Children can receive a referral via the child welfare clinic or school health service, while adults can be referred by a doctor. 

The goal of speech therapy is to improve the client’s functional and communication skills in everyday life. Speech therapy is carried out in collaboration with your family and your close surroundings. 

The speech therapist assesses and treats difficulties with: 

· speech 

· language 

· communication/interaction 

· the voice 

· reading and writing 

· eating and swallowing 

· oral motor skills
