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.
