Speech and Language pathologists, also known as “speech therapists,” do more than just help those who stutter or have a lisp. They do much more than that. Our team of highly trained Speech and Language Pathologists treat issues including, but not limited to: Stuttering; Articulation (the way things are spoken); language and speech delays; swallowing disorders; problem solving skills that deal with social communication and speech; reading comprehension and decoding the speech of others; hearing impairments; traumatic brain injury; dementia; neurological problems; dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Speech-language pathologists are very highly trained. They study anatomy and physiology, neuroanatomy, genetics, human and language development, linguistics, psychology, acoustics and more, which is why they are qualified to evaluate, diagnose and treat a broad range of issues.
