Speech and Language Pathology

Our Speech and Language Pathologist works with patients of all ages in speech, cognitive, language and swallowing deficits.  Speech therapists are able to help pediatric patients with language development skills and other speech disorders, to continue effective growth and development.

Our speech therapists are also skilled in assessing communication skills after a neurological event such as a stroke.  We assist our patients in developing strategies to regain their communication function. In addition, we are trained to assess and treat swallowing disorders. We will recommend both chewing and swallowing strategies as well as modifications to diet to allow patients to maintain adequate nutrition in the safest manner possible.
