ABOUT SPEECH PATHOLOGY
There’s nothing more valuable than the ability to communicate with your loved one, and our speech pathology attendants operate with those needs in mind. Patients recovering from surgery or managing acute illnesses need a plan for safely feeding and communicating. Dysphagia, apraxia, and other speech-language disorders often lead to difficult communication and or laborious feeding. Improvements in social interaction, feeding, and swallowing, fluency, and annunciation are achievable with a speech therapy regimen.
Our Speech Pathologists work with patients to first establish safe feeding practices and then identify goals for verbal and nonverbal communication.
Through an effective speech therapy program, patients learn to better use and comprehend language. Enhanced written, spoken, and nonverbal communication helps patients gain more independence and improve their quality of life.
