Speech Therapy

There are many reasons why an individual may need the services of a speech language pathologist. Some are born with disorders or developmental delays, others may develop them over time, and still others can experience traumatic injury or physical conditions that may impact their ability to speak or swallow.

Experienced, licensed speech-language pathologists provide diagnostic evaluations for all ages (infants through geriatrics) with regard to difficulties with:

  • Speech/articulation
  • Expressive or receptive language
  • Voice
  • Fluency
  • Feeding/swallowing

Therapeutic intervention is then implemented at our outpatient facility based on the evaluation results.

These services include treatment for:

  • Language disorder
  • Swallowing disorders (videofluoroscopy available)
  • Articulation disorders
  • Voice disorders
  • Stuttering
  • Parkinson’s disease (LSVT BIG LOUD)
  • FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing)
  • Pediatric Feeding program
  • Bilingual Speech evaluations and therapy (Spanish only)
  • Rehabilitation/habilitation for pediatric cochlear implant recipients
  • MBSS (modified barium swallow studies)

Our speech-language pathology staff is continuously developing and expanding support programs and resources offered to the public, hospital staff and our patients.
