Speech Therapy

Learn more

Speech therapy can help those with language or speech difficulties. It can also assist adults with swallowing problems and young children who may have difficulty swallowing or sucking when eating different textures of foods.

In most cases, patients are referred to speech therapy following an evaluation by a medical provider. In adults, language difficulties or swallowing problems are often the result of a stroke, neurological issue, surgery or cancer treatment. Pediatric patients may need speech therapy due to developmental delays, disease processes or birth defects. Early intervention is important. Talk with your child’s provider if you notice any language delays or have any other concerns.

Speech Therapy evaluation

The first step in the speech therapy process is an evaluation by the speech therapist. This may include several different tests. Based on the results of this evaluation, the therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan that includes exercises and activities to improve areas of concern. The therapist may also provide home exercises to continue progress made during and after therapy sessions.
