Speech Language Pathology

Our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) evaluate and treat children and adults with a variety of impairments that affect language, communication and oral motor function. This includes diagnoses such as autism-spectrum disorders; neurological trauma such as traumatic brain injury or stroke; degenerative disease such as Parkinson’s, Dementia, and ALS; and those with congenital and developmental delays. Our SLPs provide individualized treatment programs for each client focusing on return to independent living, work/school, and social life. They also work closely with Physical and Occupational Therapists to provide each patient with a full recovery, both mentally and physically.
