I work primarily with adults with the following disorders: voice (including nodules, muscle tension dysphonia etc), stroke (dysphasia, dyspraxia, dysarthria), head injuries, and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease. I also work with people who have subtle communication difficulties, which could involve word finding problems, or a difficulty organising what they are saying, and expressing themselves.
