What is Speech Therapy?

Our Speech-Language Pathologists evaluate communication problems as well as swallowing dysfunction. They design treatment plans relevant to each patient’s needs that may focus on:

  • Comprehension skills for written and verbal communication;
  • Verbal and nonverbal communication, including the use of augmentative systems when necessary;
  • Cognitive status which may include memory, orientation and reasoning skills;
  • Oral muscle strength and functioning for speaking and swallowing;
  • Swallowing skills and techniques
