Adult Therapy Services
Speech, Language, Voice, & Swallowing Therapy for Adults
We value the importance of getting to know each client, learning their interests, working with their family to understand their goals and truly know what is most important to them. By connecting with our clients on a personal level, we are able to personalize treatment plans and help each client maintain a high level of motivation. By staying motivated and engaged in the therapy program, our clients continue to show steady and significant progress.
There are many reasons for needing adult speech therapy, including a recent stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, etc. Adult speech therapists often work in collaboration with other therapists and neurologists to help clients regain or maintain memory/cognitive, speech, language, or swallowing skills.
A speech and language evaluation and therapy are recommended if you or your loved one has any of the following symptoms or diagnosis:
Stuttering or disfluent speech
Speech that is difficult to understand (e.g., slurred or mumbled)
Feeding or swallowing challenges / Dysphagia
Trouble remembering things
Difficulty finding words or putting words into a sentence
Head and neck cancer
Stroke or traumatic brain injury recovery
Dementia/Alzheimer's related challenges
Voice disorders or vocal abuse
Primary caregivers are encouraged to attend adult therapy sessions. Caregiver participation and support results in increased carryover of new skills, strategies, and techniques. We provide education and training to clients, their caregivers, and family on their disorder(s), most effective and researched based techniques and approaches to intervention, and provide recommendations for other specialists and programs as appropriate. We also provide resources and support to caregivers such as respite care, information sessions, social services, counseling, and more in order to maximize the caregiver’s ability to care for themselves and their loved ones while reducing caregiver burnout.
