Speech Therapy

Speech Language Therapy encompasses the full range of human communication and its disorders. Speech Language Pathologists (SLP’s) evaluate and treat speech, language and swallowing disorders in people of all ages in an effort to improve functional living. Speech Therapy is often warranted in individuals who experience any of the following conditions:

  • Stroke
  • Head Trauma
  • Recurrent Pneumonia (may be due to aspiration)
  • Generalized Weakness
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Dysphagia (swallowing difficulty)
  • Speech Delays
  • Stuttering
  • Speech Impediments

Many other diagnoses exist for which speech language therapy treatment is appropriate and beneficial. Some areas in which we specialize include Vital Stim, Speak Loud and modified Barium Swallow Tests. Please, contact our department to speak with a therapist about any questions or concerns related to you or your loved one’s therapy needs 618-283-5548.
