Speech and Language Therapy

Speech and Language Therapy (SLT), is a area of healthcare that focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders. Speech and language therapists, work with individuals of all ages, from infants to the elderly, who may have difficulties with speech, language, voice, fluency, and swallowing.

We work closely with case managers, families, caregivers, and other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care. The goal of speech and language therapy is to enhance an individual’s communication skills and improve their overall quality of life.

When working with brain injury clients, all our therapists have over five years’ experience and work as part of a team, carrying out joint visits and goals alongside other professionals as well as being able to feedback and speak confidently in MDT meetings.

I woke closely with KT healthcare and they are not ‘go to’ when sourcing excellent therapists for my clients. The team are extremely helpful and efficient in dealing with all matters and a pleasure to work with as part of a team. Highly recommend!

I am a case manager and I have recently used KT-Healthcare to recruit an OT for a paediatric client of mine as well as hoping to recruit a new physiotherapist also. They have been efficient in providing the information on therapists available including CV, references, costs and therapist verification information that I have needed. They are a friendly, efficient and professional team and I would always recommend them to colleagues and go to them first for any future therapists I may need to recruit for my clients.

KT Healthcare are my first port of call for Speech and Language Therapists and OT’s. They now provide Psychologists and rehab assistants, which will be helpful for me as a rehabilitation Case Manager.
James and Emily always respond very quickly to enquiries and their costs are very competitive.
