Speech Language Pathology


The ability to communicate is the innate property that makes humans what we are. This infinitely complicated and exceptionally fragile construct is the basis by which we come to understand one another, share information, and connect with those we care about. It is our great passion to assist individuals refine, retrain, and recoup access to this right of self-expression when it has otherwise been stymied. We look forward to working with adult patients who have otherwise been required to travel outside of our community to pursue services related to speech, language, voice, cognitive communication, alternative/augmentative communication, social communication, and/or swallowing difficulty. It is our privilege and honor to assist all in need of support to reach their full communicative potential.

Our speech language pathologist will develop individualized intervention for each person's needs, and has been extensively trained in the following areas:

Speech, language, and other cognitive communication issues following stroke, traumatic brain injury, or as a result of neurodegenerative disorders in adults

Swallowing difficulties in adults -- assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning

Motor speech disorders (apraxia and dysarthria)

Augmentative/alternative communication solutions

Intervention for individuals who have experienced cognitive changes as a result of right hemisphere brain damage
