In some cases after a serious head or brain injury the injured person may experience speech problems and not be able to communicate in the same way as before the accident. The role of a speech and language therapist is to work with individuals who have sustained a head or brain injury and assist them communicate more effectively both orally and in written word.
The speech and language therapist is also able to offer support to the families so they understand how and why the injury has affected the injured person’s speech.
