Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy treatment may be utilized to target impairments affecting voice, fluency, cognition, aphasia, and swallowing. Our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) strive to implement programs that will increase verbal expression, auditory comprehension, and problem-solving.

This allows for increased ability to communicate basic physical needs and emotional status, communicate personal self-care needs, engage in social communicative interaction with immediate family and friends, plan for future events, and reminisce about the past. Speech Therapy services aid in increasing overall speech intelligibility, increasing ability to follow mobility sequences, reading functional information (labels, recipes, news), and communicating without assistance in multi-topic exchanges.

Our Speech-Language Pathologists also commonly treat swallowing difficulties known as dysphagia. We develop exercise programs, utilize VitalStim®, teach compensatory strategies and safe swallow techniques, and provide patient and caregiver therapy education to help with recovery of swallowing function.
