Speech therapy involves maximizing communication for patients who have
difficulty in the areas of speaking, hearing, communication and swallowing.
Many people with neurological impairments brought on by aging, Parkinson’s
disease or stroke may exhibit communication and swallowing difficulties.
Our speech therapists provide testing and treatment for oral motor dysfunction.
For patients with swallowing difficulties, our therapists perform modified
barium swallows to help determine the level of dysfunction. A directed
treatment regimen can then be established to maximize the ability of the patient.
For patients with communication disorders, we provide the latest technology,
including biofeedback, to maximize patient function. Biofeedback units
are devices that attach to the patient’s head or neck region by
electrodes and provide immediate information about which facial muscles
need to be used and which need to be relaxed.
