Speech-Language Therapy

Speech Therapists treat a wide range of issues; disorders can range from mild to severe. Some are present at birth while others develop over time. Some are a part of a neurological function, while others stem from injury or disability. Regardless of how the disorder occurred, speech-language therapy can contribute to an improved quality of life for many patients.

Disorders include:

  • Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders
  • Speech Sound Disorders/Articulation Disorders
  • Stuttering and Other Fluency Disorders
  • Receptive Disorders
  • Brain Injury-Related Speech Disorders/Dysarthria
  • Concussions/Cognitive Disorders
