Speech-language therapy is an intervention service that focuses to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders for people of all ages. Speech-language therapists (SLT), or speech-language pathologists, are the professionals providing these services. During the first session, SLT will assess your condition before discussing the appropriate plan of treatment. Family member(s)/caregivers also need to participate throughout the treatment process as it plays a crucial piece to better outcome and long term success.

Who needs speech therapy?
Your healthcare provider may recommend speech-language therapy to help with:
Aphasia: Having difficulty in reading, writing, speaking and understanding language due to the damaged areas of the brain that process language caused by stroke or injury.
Apraxia: Know what they want to say, but have trouble forming the words. They may have trouble with reading, writing, swallowing or other motor skills.
Articulation disorders: Unable to produce certain word sounds. For example, they may substitute one sound for another — like saying “wed” instead of “red” or “thith” instead of “this.”
Dysarthria: The muscles that control the speech become weak due to stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or other nervous system disorders. People with dysarthria may have slow or slurred speech.
Expressive disorders: Having difficulty in getting words out or conveying their thoughts. Expressive disorders are linked to stroke or other neurological events, developmental delays or hearing loss.
Fluency disorders: The speed, flow and rhythm of speech are disrupted such as stuttering.
Receptive disorders: Difficulty in understanding or processing what others are saying. As a result, they may have a limited vocabulary, trouble following directions or they may seem uninterested in conversation.
Resonance disorders. Conditions affecting oral or nasal cavities may block airflow and alter the vibrations responsible for sound. Resonance disorders are linked to cleft palate, swollen tonsils and other conditions that affect the structure of these body parts.
