Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy is a skilled profession that is utilized for the treatment of patients suffering from motor or neurological deficits. A Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) typically works in conjunction with a Physical Therapist and/or Occupational Therapist in a team approach to maximize patient outcome. In the home, a SLP identifies communication barriers that may interfere with the ability of a patient to successfully communicate. For example, an individual that has suffered a stroke may be experiencing phasia, altering his or her ability to express or understand. The Speech-Language Pathologist is highly trained in effective methods of enhancing communication skills. In addition, a SLP may work with an individual that has developed a problem with swallowing due to surgery or neurological disorder, helping the physician and family to determine when a change in diet can be safely incorporated to minimize the potential of choking and aspiration.
