Speech Therapy

Home > Services > Speech Therapy

Our speech therapists work with patients to help improve the ability to speak, listen, read, write, organize and solve problems. Speech therapy can be especially helpful for patients whose abilities are impaired because of a stroke or head injury, those who suffer from speech impediments such as stuttering, patients who have suffered a hearing loss and those with a mental disability or a condition such as cerebral palsy.

On an outpatient basis, we provide treatment to help those who suffer from a variety of conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • Brain Injury
  • Cognition deficits
  • Delayed Language/Articulation
  • Dysphasia (inability to swallow or difficulty swallowing)
  • Visual perception difficulties
  • Reading comprehension difficulties

For patients who have swallowing problems, we can perform a barium swallow study to diagnose the cause of the problem and provide treatment. Our therapists are trained in providing VITAL STIM— the only therapy of its kind certified by the Food & Drug Administration for the treatment of swallowing disorders. By using electrical stimulation to increase strength and coordination of the swallowing muscles, our speech pathologists may help patients improve their quality of life and regain the ability to enjoy normal eating and drinking. For more information, please call 409-853-5765.
