Speech Therapy

Speech therapists assess and treat language and communication deficits and facilitate the development or recovery of communication skills. Speech therapy helps people with swallowing, eating and voice deficits by providing an in-depth assessment and recommendations for treatment.

Speech exercises help retrain the muscles involved in speaking or swallowing. These exercises can help train the brain to understand words, numbers or gestures, as well as to improve concentration and information processing.
