Restoring Communication Skills
Speech language pathologists (speech therapists) provide comprehensive
evaluation and treatment of a variety of disorders with a concentration
in the areas of speech, language, cognition, and swallow function.
Using a variety of techniques and resources, our pathologists work side-by-side
to improve speech function and offset any difficulties you may be experiencing.
Our goal is to restore independence in all areas of life.
The speech therapy department also performs video swallow studies in conjunction
with the radiology department. A video swallow study, sometimes called
a modified barium swallow study, is an assessment of swallow function
that is used to evaluate and treat dysphagia, or swallowing difficulty.
These services are provided Monday through Friday, between the hours of
