Appointments are given within your own timing and wherever you prefer.

We will immediately activate our speech therapists so as to organise a house call in your own language, wherever you need it and with no delay.
Please take notice: Medelit works with many international healthcare insurance companies. Please do let us know whether you have an insurance as it may well be that your home therapy is already covered for.
We also provide an integrated approach to School Speech Therapy. We offer a flexible, highly effective approach to purchasing Speech & Language Therapy provision directly for schools.
What is Speech Therapy:
Speech and language therapy provides life-changing treatment, support and care for children and adults who have difficulties with speech and communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing.
Speech and language therapists (SLTs) are allied health professionals. They usually work within a multidisciplinary team and with those close to the patients, such as family members, carers and other professionals, such as teachers.
Children’s speech and language development follows a typical pattern. Typical children speech disorders include conditions such as dysarthria, articulation and phonological disorders, stuttering, selective mutism, autism, cleft lip palate.
Adults may experience speech and language difficulties for a variety of reasons. Speech and language differences and disorders in adults can be associated to conditions such as dementia, stroke, oral cancer or traumatic brain damage.
