Speech Therapy as an Adult

Post by Cmando »

Hi there,

I'm a 20 year old university student with dyspraxia. I manage quite well in most things but I've had low self-esteem and a lot of anxiety, particularly in social situations, due to my verbal dyspraxia. I received some speech therapy when I was very young but I still lisp, particularly with 's' sounds and often my speech can be quite unclear to others. Has anyone had any experience of getting speech therapy as an adult on the NHS or privately? If so, how did you find it? Has it helped?
