Speech and Language Therapy

If you have problems with any of the following, our Speech and Language Therapy program can help:

  • Language – difficulty understanding others or expressing yourself
  • Communication – difficulty remembering words in order to understand or express an idea, read or write
  • Voice – loss or partial loss of your voice
  • Speech – unable to produce sounds correctly, including stuttering
  • Swallowing – difficulty passing food, drink or saliva 

How Are Conditions Treated?

Before your treatment program is developed, our specially trained therapists will complete a thorough exam to determine the reason for your impairment. Some common reasons are:

  • Brain injury
  • Brain tumor
  • Cognitive problems that affect thinking, memory, attention, and reasoning
  • Dementia
  • Learning or developmental disability
  • Stroke
  • Vocal abuse, damaged vocal organs or damage to the nerves connected to voice box

Your speech therapist, or speech and language pathologist, will help develop your personalized treatment program. Using the latest techniques, tools and technology, your treatment goal will be to:

  • Restore any lost function
  • Improve your existing abilities
  • Or enhance your communication through alternative methods
