Speech and Language Therapy Services
The University of Reading has an excellent international and national reputation for training speech and language therapy students for over 40 years. We have a modern onsite purpose built clinic which enables us to run teaching and placement clinics and to contribute to research. We are able to see both adult and paediatric client groups with a wide range of speech, language and communication difficulties.
Our independent clinics are free and are run at set times within the University academic year. There is always student involvement, ranging from observation to taking responsibility for a small caseload. Students are always working under the supervision of highly experienced speech and language therapists. We ask for consent to make recordings of sessions for teaching purposes. We will ask if you wish to volunteer in any relevant research projects and if you wish to be included on a research database.
We also work collaboratively with Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Berkshire Hospital. We host an NHS paediatric disorders of fluency service and provide a NHS community clinic service for adults with acquired communication disorders and adults with voice problems.
Feedback from a parent
"Rowan's speech wasn't progressing normally, though he was obviously bright. He started becoming frustrated when people couldn't understand him, and we sought professional help. Katherine was so supportive of Rowan, but also of us as day-to-day parental speech therapists. It wasn't always easy, but Katherine's patience meant that S< was always a place where we could make mistakes and learn together. Rowan's language has improved dramatically, as has his confidence. He is now one of the chattiest at Show and Tell!"
