I’d suggest she needs an assessment before giving any advice, and it may be that she needs to be considering AAC if her speech has deteriorated – difficult to say without seeing her. There’s no reason that she shouldn’t see a private therapist if she chooses to do so – many of our patients see us because they don’t want to wait for ages on an NHS waiting list. It sounds as though she would benefit from being seen sooner rather than later. Hope that is helpful.
