The Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists in Private Practice (IASLTPP) was renamed Independent Speech-Language Therapists in Ireland (ISTI) in January 2015. So the IASLTPP hasn’t gone anywhere, we’ve just changed our name!
All members of the Independent Speech-Language Therapists of Ireland are fully qualified speech and language therapists with at least two years postgraduate experience.
The search feature on this website does not include every SLT working in private practice in Ireland. It contains only qualified speech and language therapists in private who choose to submit a listing. To check on the qualifications of a therapist not listed on this site, contact www.CORU.ie. CORU is the statutory body for speech therapists in Ireland
This information is offered as a service to the public and members of our profession. The accuracy of the listings is the responsibility of individuals listed. ISTI does not accept responsibility for the content on the individual members’ web pages or the services provided by any individual listed therein. The database does not constitute a recommendation of any speech and language therapist by our association.
Members of the public are advised to inquire as to the qualifications and experience of the therapist.
Early intervention is key in helping children with their speech, language and communication skills. Depending on the difficulty, it may be appropriate to intervene right from the first months of life when critical advice can be given to advance communication development. In these early stages, parents can learn invaluable techniques to use in the child’s natural environment. If you suspect that your child’s speech, language or communication is delayed, you should seek the advice of a speech and language therapist.
No, you can contact a speech and language therapist directly to make an appointment
The first visit will be for a consultation or assessment. The parent/carer is usually present whilst the child is being assessed. Sometimes the assessment is conducted over two sessions. Once the assessment is complete, the therapist will discuss the results with you. If therapy is indicated, the therapist will explain what the options are and give an idea of the proposed therapy schedule.
The competition authority precludes our association from making any recommendations to therapists regarding therapy charges. Assessment will cost more than treatment visits because of the therapist’s time analysing the data after the assessment. Costs will also be incurred for reports and visits/phonecalls to schools/hospitals. Prices may also vary according to the complexity of the case or experience of the therapist. You should check the cost before commencing speech and language therapy.
