Speech, Language, Swallowing Therapy

Speech, Language, Swallowing Therapy

Sometimes called speech therapists, speech-language pathologists work with children and adults to improve their ability to communicate with others. They also treat people with swallowing problems.


Customized testing and treatment
Speech-language pathologists work with the full range of communication issues from infants to the elderly. We evaluate and treat speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders, including those caused by:
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s
  • Developmental delays
  • Feeding issues
  • Swallowing problems
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic brain injury

What we do
Speech-language pathologists can:
  • treat speech, language and voice problems caused by stroke, brain injury or deterioration, developmental delays, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, cleft palate and hearing loss
  • improve low volume and reduced or unclear speech
  • teach ways to improve memory, problem solving and judgment
  • treat swallowing problems and recommend a safe and appropriate diet
  • provide aural (hearing) rehabilitation to help people with cochlear implants or hearing aids learn to interpret sound
  • recommend other communication methods, including electronic devices and sign language
  • help children with language developmental delay, feeding disorders and hearing problems
