Adult Therapy Services

"It's more than just speech…"

We treat conditions and disorders relating to stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, dementia, voice disorders, stuttering, apraxia, dysarthria, aphasia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Huntington’s Disease, laryngeal cancer, oral cancer, and many others.

 

We help you restore a higher level of function with respectful care for your unique needs and rate of progress. We also help educate and prepare your family for what to expect on the journey to higher quality communication ability, as family support is an indispensable part of the treatment process.

We also specialize in VitalStim® swallowing therapy, which effectively restores ability to swallow and eat the least restrictive diet possible in patients suffering from dysphagia (difficulty swallowing).

 

Common Dysphagia Symptoms:

  • Coughing/clearing of throat after swallow

  • Difficulty swallowing or initiating a swallow

  • Abnormal volitional cough

  • Decreased voice quality (wet, hoarse, weak)

  • Recurring chest infections

  • Swallowing difficulty: multiple swallows or special maneuvers required to clear throat

  • Difficulty completing a meal

  • Feeling of food being stuck in the throat

  • Soft diet or modified diet required (thickening, pureeing food; soft solids)

  • Spilling food or liquid from lips and/or drooling
