Does any one with Ataxia see a speech therapy I have had Ataxia for 3 years my speech is slurred and some words I struggle to get out so I asked to see a speech therapy went last week I had to repeat a lot of words after him which was okay as single words come out fine whole sentences are more a problem then he told me to go home and read aloud from a book and would phone me in a month time that it?
I thought he would give me some exercise or something
I wondered what other people have had to do at a speech therapy
I have recently had a great experience with the speech therapy course Ataxia UK organise. It has really helped with my approach to speaking and the confidence needed for speaking amongst a group, especially with longer sentences and uncommon words. See ataxia.org.uk/support-servi... for more information.
Thank you I have put my name on the waiting list
I have too, 12 months here. The LSVT course mentioned sounds interesting
