Speech Therapy North East was established in 2016 with the aim of providing specialist speech and language therapy to people in the North East of England. We have quickly grown into a large team of associate independent speech and language therapists which is led by Matthew Nakonesky – Principal Speech and Language Therapist. You can find out more about our team here.
We can now provide services to people in the Lake District and surrounding areas, York and the North Yorkshire areas and Northumberland. Despite being based in the heart of the North East we are more than happy to travel further afield to deliver and showcase the excellent services we have become known for.
Speech Therapy North East services are predominantly carried out in your own home, and range from one off sessions for assessment/advice to longer blocks of therapy with a very client-centred approach at the heart of all interventions. Realistic and client-specific goals will always be set, and therapy blocks will aim to deliver an appropriate mix of therapist led sessions and therapy tasks which can be completed independently or with the support of family members/carers with progress monitored closely. We will always provide open and honest feedback regarding client progress and modify therapy programs accordingly.
The use of technology to provide therapy and to deliver intensive therapy is another area often explored with clients where possible. The use of a tablet or laptop with therapy apps/software is a very useful and effective way in helping deliver and support therapy. We can also provide flexibility in the way we deliver therapy sessions by completing remote therapy sessions when this is clinically appropriate to do so.
Our team is very active in sharing clinical experience and therapy ideas within the team which allows all of our therapists to deliver a fantastic range of therapy approaches to their clients. We have a real commitment to providing innovative therapy interventions and constantly keep up to date with approaches that are fully supported by clinical research.
