FIDELITY is working with young people aged 5 - 17 years old who have cerebral palsy and dysarthria who live in Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside (including Gateshead), County Durham, Sunderland, North Teeside, South Teeside or Cumbria.
The study is looking at whether we can provide our new speech therapy via the internet, three times a week for six weeks. Some young people will receive the internet therapy straight away, with our research speech and language therapist (SLTS). Some young people will be asked to continue with their current NHS therapy, with their usual therapist, and will be offered the internet therapy at the end of the study.
