Speech and Language Therapy

Stroke Rehabilitation

When the brain does not receive enough oxygen or nutrients, it causes the brain to die, leading to stroke. Although being a leading condition at an elderly age, it can happen to anyone at any time, including teenagers, children, newly born and unborn babies. There are three different types of Stroke:

  • Ischemic strokes - caused by a narrowing or blocking of arteries to the brain
  • Haemorrhagic strokes - caused by bursting or leaking of blood vessels in and around the brain
  • Transient Ischemic Attack - A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is similar to an ischemic stroke caused by a blocked artery, except for the fact that it is temporary

One of the major effects after a stroke is problems with communication. People have difficulty with speech and language which is referred as aphasia. At Nightingales, expert care is specialized in treating language disorders and speech problems offering a wide range of programs to overcome issues for people who:


  • Cannot produce speech sounds clearly with precision
  • Face language disorders; difficulty in finding the right words or form sentences
  • Have cognitive communication impairments such as attention deficits, memory problems and problem solving disorders

Pediatric Therapy

The risk of stroke in children, newly-borns and unborn babies is relatively rare and is challenging to parents and caregivers. To support the growing needs of clinical care for pediatrics, Nightingales is committed to provide support and guidance to parents and their children who face problems with the communication through Paediatric Speech and Language therapy sessions.

We achieve this by

  • Thorough assessment to identify the needs of the children and their parents
  • An individual care plan to help the children with their daily activities
  • Enhancing techniques to recognize and change behaviour patterns to avoid any negative impact on their education or social lives

  • Help with stammering
  • Using communication skills appropriately
