Our Speech / Language Services Include the Following:
Neurological Rehabilitation: We provide highly experienced clinicians to treat those who have any impairment
of their written or verbal communication abilities following a stroke,
head injury, or onset of a neurological disease. We develop a treatment
plan with you to meet your needs and goals. We also encourage you to involve
your family in both the treatment planning and home-based activities.
Pediatric Speech / Language Delay or Disorder: We offer outpatient services for children who have delays in speech development
or verbal language abilities, and/or specific disorders in any communication
skill (e.g. articulation, verbal expression, receptive language). Strong
family participation is an integral part of every treatment plan.
Communication for Post-Tracheostomy Adults: Our skilled clinicians are able to evaluate individual needs and abilities
of those who have long-term tracheostomies that have impaired their use
of speech. Augmentative communication options are explored in keeping
with your abilities and needs.
Adult Voice Disorders: Evaluation and therapy for the improvement and preservation of the voice
is available for those who have functional, organic, or neurological etiologies.
We work with you to develop treatment plans for optimum compliance and
progress toward your desired vocal skills.
Laryngectomy Services: We evaluate your ability to use, or train you in the use of, the appropriate
alarygeal device or method. Your preferences and goals for communication
help us determine the optimal treatment direction for you.
Additional Services: We also provide services for fluency disorders and offer speech therapy
using the Language Care Center “Lingraphica” Program.
