Being able to communicate and express oneself is a fundamental part of our daily lives. Communication disorders can occur at any age and may be caused by trauma, disease, or preexisting conditions. Speech-language therapy helps those who have communication or swallowing problems. Our speech-language pathologists identify, assess and provide treatment for patients of all ages. They work with family, caregivers and other service providers to ensure the most effective and comprehensive treatment and management possible.

Specialized services such as the Modified Barium Swallow Study records the patient as they eat and swallow. The Speech-Language Pathologist evaluates and makes recommendations that may include Dysphagia therapy, but most of all provides the patient with information about the safest food and drink consistencies along with strategies that will prevent aspiration.
