Speech Therapy is a health profession specializing in the evaluation and treatment of people who have speech, language, voice, fluency or swallowing disorders that affect their ability to communicate. Patients can receive directed programs for post CVA, or stroke survivors having difficulty communicating due to aphasia, dysarthria, apraxia or swallowing deficits.
Therapy may be provided as part of the treatment for head and neck cancer patients, traumatic brain injury, or progressive diseases such as Parkinson’s or ALS. Speech and language services can be provided to infants, toddlers, and school-aged children as well; who may be experiencing developmental delays, autism, auditory processing difficulties or perhaps has a medical condition affecting communication such as cleft palate.
Services are provided on both an inpatient and outpatient
basis. A physician’s order must be obtained for evaluation and treatment. Speech
Therapy treatment is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most other insurance
carriers. Please contact your insurance company for more information on your
