General Information
Description of ServiceA Speech/Language Pathologist evaluates and treats speech language, and swallowing disorders. A speech/language pathologist is also qualified to provide voice therapy, cognitive therapy, aural rehabilitation for the hearing impaired, as well as training in the use of alternative communication devices.

We are now offering Vital Stimulation Therapy . This is a new, FDA approved modality for the treatment of dysphagia/swallowing problems. This modality provides external neuromuscular electrical stimulation to the neck area, in conjunction with functional swallowing exercises provided by the Speech/Language Pathologist, to re-educate and strengthen weakened swallowing muscles. While traditional dysphagia/swallowing therapy compensates for lost functions, Vital Stimulation Therapy can actually improve function. Vital Stimulation can only be administered by a Speech/Language Pathologist that has been certified in Vital Stimulation.

Clients who have suffered with stroke, head injury or other neurological disease, as well as those with voice disorders, hearing impairment, cognitive impairment, or difficulty understanding, speaking, or swallowing may benefit from the services of a Speech/Language Pathologist
