About Us – Specialist private speech & language therapists

My name is Jo Frost I set up The Speech Therapy Practice after many years working as a speech and language therapist in the NHS and independently. In 2016 we opened SISU Therapy Centre. A clinic in Kings Heath where we can provide therapy, please see: sisutherapy.com

 

Who We Treat?

Speech and Voice Therapy for Adults

My clinical expertise is with adults who have communication and/or swallowing disorders following a stroke, brain injury or as a consequence of a progressive neurological disorder ( like Parkinson’s disease or MND).  I  have a clinic in Kings Heath Birmingham where I see the majority of my clients.

 

I work with people in the early weeks following the onset of their communication and swallowing difficulties, but I also work with people many years after their problems start. My approach is to take the clients needs and personal situation and try to make therapy realistic for everyday life. This functional approach to rehabilitation is backed up by research evidence.

 

Working with Case Managers

Our team of Neuro specialists have considerable experience working with Case Managers as part of a client’s rehabilitation team. From clients in a minimally conscious state to those with high level cognitive communication problems we have experience and would be delighted to discuss the needs of your client.

We also provide a voice clinic and therapy for people who are undergoing gender reassignment.

Speech & Language Therapy for Children

Not sure if your child is developing as they should be? Check this link for some helpful information.

Private speech and language therapy services for children are increasingly required by parents across Birmingham. People want the opportunity to choose whether they wait for statutory provision or see a specialist more quickly. We can provide a service to meet your needs. I have a number of specialist paediatric therapists working alongside me who are able to provide one off assessment and advice appointments or ongoing speech and language therapy treatment. Sometimes this enables parents to put their mind at rest that their child’s language and communication skills are developing normally. It may mean that families are able to support their children’s language development in a more focussed way at home, or it may be that children come for a period of therapy to address specific needs.

Adults with a learning disability and children with complex medical needs

From time to time we are asked to provide specific services for people who have complex communication needs. I have a small number of highly specialist therapists who are able to provide these services. We can provide assessment and costing reports for case managers or bespoke training packages as required.



Second opinion speech therapy

If you have already seen a speech & language therapist and would like a second opinion please get in touch.  We can discuss your current needs and, following an initial assessment  help form a second opinion.
