Who are Speech-Language Pathologists?
Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are certified therapists who specialize in communication and swallowing. They are often referred to as “speech therapists.” They work with people of all ages to help them with their speech, language, voice, and swallowing.
Services for Adults:
Adults can also experience difficulties with communication and swallowing. These troubles may be related to stroke, hearing loss, brain injuries, long—term illnesses, respiratory illnesses, head/neck cancer, or diseases like Parkinson’s or dementia. Our SLPs are also certified in voice therapy for Parkinson’s Disease.
