SPEECH THERAPY HOME HEALTH CARE: PEDIATRIC & ADULT

Speech Therapy provides expertise and interventions for difficulties with eating, swallowing and communication.

Pediatric

In the first years of life, it’s difficult to determine whether or not a child has a possible speech, language, or feeding disability. Speech Language Pathologists (SLPS) can help parents and children by diagnosing the problem as a language impairment (difficulty understanding and using words to communicate and function with other people) such as blending of sounds together, a speech sound disorder (difficulties with articulation and speech intelligibility), stuttering, or feeding disorders (motor difficulties in the tongue, jaw or throat that impact the child’s ability to eat). Our Speech Language Pathologists aim is to teach the child and parents methods that are effective in improving these areas that meet the needs of the family and the client

Adult

Speech Therapy for adults provides expertise and interventions for cognitive issues, language or speech sound production, social and swallowing impairments following a Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, or due to progressive diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, ALS, to name a few.  We aim to improve the person’s ability to communicate, talk, eat and think.
