Speech Therapy

Adults and children with a variety of communication impairments can benefit from speech-language therapy.

Our licensed, certified speech pathologists provide services for a variety of disorders including articulation and phonological disorders, language disorders, developmental delay, fluency problems, and organic disorders.

Our pediatric speech therapy program provides evaluation, treatment, education, and family support to children of all ages.

For adults and seniors, we evaluate and treat dysphagia, speech and language disorders, voice problems, head injuries, tracheostomies, and head and neck cancer. We also work on cognitive-communication with patients with neurological impairment. Our staff strives to meet each patient and family's goals for optimal communication and safe/effective swallowing with education, support, and quality of care.
