What is Speech-Language Pathology?
Speech Therapy helps improve neurologically impaired abilities to communicate, chewing, and swallowing disorders, memory, and/or communication difficulties.
Speech-Language Pathologists help with all aspects of communication, including speech, voice, language, reading, and writing. Our highly trained therapists use treatment modalities, specialized equipment, and leading-edge therapies to maintain the ability to communicate. Speech therapy also strives to restore and maintain cognition.
To help restore normal function for residents who have difficulty swallowing, we have specialized dysphagia therapies.
Speech therapies and procedure include:
- Exercises to stimulate receptive, integrative, and expressive processes
- Sensory-Motor activities to stimulate chewing, swallowing, articulatory, and voice processes
- Selection and training in the use of non-oral communication aids, including augmentative systems
- Specialized swallowing therapy
- Cognitive Skills Training
- Compensatory Swallowing Techniques
