Speech Therapy

What is speech pathology?

Communication can be significantly enhanced through therapy. Speech-Language Pathology is the study of disorders that affect a person’s communication and/or swallowing capabilities. 

 Patients span all ages

Children born with birth defects such as cleft palate, cerebral palsy, may begin speech therapy as newborns.

Young children who only babble or play with sounds or who talk but are only understood by the parents should also be considered for speech therapy.

Adult patients usually have health issues that affect the operation of the brain, such as stroke or traumatic brain injury, which impacts the individual’s ability to communicate or swallow/eat. The adult population may also include persons with degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and ALS. Speech pathologists work in medical, educational, and clinical settings.
