Matthew NakoneskyPrincipal Speech and Language Therapist
Matthew trained as a Speech Pathologist (that’s what they are called over in Australia!) and qualified in 2009. Since qualifying Matthew has worked primarily with adult clients who have experienced communication and/or swallowing difficulties due to a neurological event or condition.
Matthew has worked in a range of clinical settings including large acute teaching hospitals, community based work and spent several years working at a regional neurological inpatient rehabilitation centre in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Matthew is very passionate about delivering client focused and goal driven therapy, incorporating outcome measures to gauge progress. The use of technology is a large interest area both in providing therapy and the use of communication aids.
Matthew is very experienced working with patients who are involved in a medico-legal claim and enjoys the multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation that this provides.
