Speech Language Pathology services help patients overcome challenges associated with speech, language, cognition, communication, voice, swallowing, fluency and other related communication disorders. Our Speech Language Pathologist works with patients to help them develop or recover reliable communication skills so they can communicate, learn and work to their fullest potentials.

Treatment Focus

Speech/language and swallowing  difficulties can result from stroke, brain injury or deterioration and voice pathology. Our Speech Language Pathology department specializes in treating adult neurogenic disorders such as aphasia, Parkinson's disease, head injury as well as other areas including laryngectomy, swallowing difficulties and voice problems. We provide both inpatient and outpatient services.

We then provide an individualized treatment plan tailored to each patient's specific needs. Our personal approach also includes helping families cope with the stress and misunderstanding that often accompanies communication disorders. We help family members recognize and change behavior patterns that impede communication and treatment and show them communication-enhancing techniques to use at home. We also offer inpatient and outpatient modified barium swallowing (MBS) tests.


We accept most major health insurances, workers compensation claims for industrial accidents and motor vehicle accident cases. You will need a physician prescription for insurance coverage. Call any one of our locations for more information.
