About my practice
My clinic is based just outside Newcastle Co Wicklow.
I have over 30 years clinical experience in communication disorders and neuro rehabilitation -working with adults and adolescents with any problems in communication following brain injury (such as head injury/ stroke), and other neurological disorders and developmental neuro diverse conditions such as ASD.
Programmes may include a focus on:
Language (word finding problems, problems in understanding spoken or written language, problems in expression),
Cognitive communication (attention, memory, information processing and comprehension; range of cognitive domains underpinning communication competence),
Social communication (problems in starting/stopping conversations, problems following and managing conversations efficiently, getting the point, keeping to the point, non-verbal communication, literality),
Speaking (voice, articulation and intonation),
I also offer programmes in social interaction skills for self expression and effective communication mainly with adolescents and adults, one-off consultations for reports and medical legal reports.
I do not currently offer a dysphagia service (service for eating and swallowing problems).
