Speech Therapy

Speech therapy (ST) is designed to help people with conditions that affect their speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, fluency and other related disorders.

Dysphagia

Dysphagia impairs swallowing and may interfere with nutrition, the enjoyment of food, and breathing. Aspiration is when food and/or liquid enter the airway instead of the esophagus. Aspiration may lead to pneumonia or serious chronic lung disease if a swallowing dysfunction is not addressed.

Dysarthria

Dysarthria is a speech disorder characterized by weakness, slow movement, and a lack of coordination of the muscles associated with speech. Dysarthria can result from neurological conditions, surgery, infections or head injuries. Dysarthria and dysphagia may co-occur.

Aphasia

Aphasia is a disorder that impairs a person's ability to understand, formulate and use language. It is most commonly the result of a neurological condition such as a stroke or severe head injury.
