Speech Therapy


Imagine, for a moment, you could not speak and communicate effectively – unable to easily ask a question, share a thought or hold a conversation.

This is often the case for those who suffer from a stroke, dementia, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cancer, concussion, cognitive disorders or mental health issues. Some of these conditions can also make it difficult to swallow.

Speech-language pathologists, also called speech therapists, work with people who suffer from a variety of speech disorders, including:

  • Stuttering
  • Difficulty producing sounds
  • Difficulty understanding words
  • Problems organizing thoughts
