Speech and Language Pathology Services
Our speech-language pathologists work with people who have:
- Speech rhythm and fluency problems
- Voice disorders
- Difficulties producing speech sounds clearly
- Cognitive communication impairments
- Swallowing difficulties
From outpatient speech therapy programs to inpatient speech rehabilitation,
our pathologists can evaluate, assess, and treat a number of communication issues.
Our therapists begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the specific
causes of a speech disorder, and then create a personalized system of
care that can appropriately treat the diagnosis.
Our speech-language pathologists can then work with you, your loved one,
or your child to ensure the best possible outcome. Ultimately, we aim
to make you feel as successful as possible throughout every stage of your
treatment and progress.
Individualized Plans of Care for Patients with Swallowing Disorders
Some speech, language, and swallowing problems are "developmental"
in nature, and many times, children can overcome the issue over time.
In other instances, however, the disorder is not developmental and will
require specific therapy in order to effectively treat the disorder. In
these circumstances, our pathologists can create a unique treatment program
that can help any patient effectively overcome any obstacle related to
speech, language or swallowing.

Our speech-language pathologists develop an individualized plan of care
that is tailored to each patient's needs. They teach patients how
to make sounds, improve their voices, or increase their oral or written
language skills to communicate more effectively. They also teach individuals
how to strengthen muscles or use compensatory strategies to swallow without
choking or inhaling food or liquid.
