Speech Therapy

Adult and Pediatric Speech Therapy

I know you’re a speech-language pathologist, but what do you do?

Most people know what physical and occupational therapists do, but to many, speech therapy is a mystery. To put it simply, the goal of the therapy team (PT, OT, speech) is to treat the whole person from head to toe (literally) to get patients to the highest functional level possible.

While physical therapy involves strengthening the lower body/legs and occupational therapy involved strengthening the upper body/arms/fine motor skills, speech therapy involved treating muscles and functions from the neck up, including swallowing, speech/language, and memory.

Our Speech-Language Pathology Department provides high quality, engaging, and personal speech therapy services to patients of all ages (birth to geriatric).

Services include:

  • Speech Production/Articulation
  • Receptive and Expressive Language
  • Social skills
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Fluency/Stuttering
  • Childhood Apraxia of Speech
  • Augmentative and Alternative
  • Communication Early Intervention
  • Stroke Rehabilitation
  • Voice
  • Swallowing/Dysphagia
  • Cognition-decline in memory, reduced orientation, reduced problem solving, reduced attention, decreased safety awareness, difficulty sequencing steps for daily tasks

Patients are seen on an individual one-on-one basis in a private therapy room. We also offer a 6 week summer group session 2 days a week for children aged 2-6 who qualify that would benefit from social skills and/or language facilitation. Teletherapy is also offered depending on the patient’s needs.

Check with your insurance on details of coverage.
