Speech Therapy is Key Component in Rehabilitation
Speech therapy helps patients improve their ability to communicate when recovering from debilitating conditions such as stroke or other neurological conditions.
Speech-Language Pathologists work with patients to assess and treat vocal and language impairment, which includes understanding spoken words, producing fluent speech, and choosing the correct words when speaking. A speech therapist can also help patients who have problems swallowing, communicating and patients with cognitive impairments. There are numerous technologies that can be used in conjunction with speech therapy to help patients reach their goals.
