Speech Therapy evaluates and treats patients with neurological and developmental problems of all ages. Once referred to speech therapy, each patient is evaluated by a licensed speech therapist and an individualized treatment plan is developed.
Therapists utilize a wide variety of modalities and activities to assist in returning each patient to their optimal function. Throughout the treatments, patients and families receive education on their speech and language difficulties and a Home Program is developed to enhance treatments and accelerate achievement of goals.
