More information and taking part

FIDELITY worked with 22 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 Teesside, South Teesside 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 received the internet therapy straight away, with our research speech and language therapists (SLTs).  Some young people were asked to continue with their current NHS therapy, with their usual therapist, and were offered the internet therapy at the end of the study.

We have now finished collecting data for the study and are analysing the results.
