Our speech language pathologists do more than help you speak. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders can occur as a result of stroke, trauma, rain injury, neurological diseases or developmental delays. Individuals with a variety of deficits may benefit from speech therapy:
- Cognition (“thinking skills”)
- Expressive Language
- Receptive language
- Neurological Rehabilitation
- Head & Neck Cancers
FirstHealth Speech Language Pathologists provide objective diagnostic swallowing assessments, including Modified Barium Studies, flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing. Services may include screening, evaluation, consultation, therapy and counseling in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
The pathologists collaborate and work closely with other health care professionals to design a plan of care based on your individual needs.
