Speech Therapy

Overview

Speech-language pathology focuses on the identification, evaluation, treatment and education of speech, language, voice and feeding/swallowing disorders.

To Help Treat:

  • Accent modification
  • Cognitive communication (reasoning, attention, memory, planning, organizing, problem-solving)
  • Fluency (stuttering)
  • Language – understanding others (receptive language), sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings
  • Motor speech – difficulty with motor control of speech muscles (dysarthria); impairment in the motor programming of speech movements (apraxia of speech)
  • Swallowing (dysphagia) – feeding and swallowing difficulties which may be congenital in nature or due to surgery, stroke, head and neck cancer, injury or progressive neurological disease.
