The power of communication leads to the power to succeed, to build self-confidence, to achieve goals and to express love. The ability to create speech and manipulate language is a highly refined skill which takes time to learn and perfect. Whether it’s a child who is delayed in talking, or an adult who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, stroke or serious illness, the Rehab Center has programs designed to help — to lead our clients to success, self-confidence and freedom.
We provide services to both children and adults enabling them to reach their optimal level of communication or swallowing function. We offer effective treatment for clients with disorders that include:
- Language Delay
- Neurological Disorder
- Motor Speech Disorder
- Apraxia Disorder
- Fluency Disorder
- Voice Disorder
- Swallowing Difficulty/Feeding Aversion
- Hearing Rehabilitation
- Auditory Processing Difficulty
- Augmentative or Alternative Communication Needs
The Rehab Center has Speech Language Pathologists who are trained and certified to perform electrical stimulation for swallowing disorders. These are state-of-the art treatment techniques for swallowing disorders with results based on client’s pre- and post-treatment Modified Barium Swallow Studies. Results are seen in significantly less time than with traditional swallowing therapy. Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation is used in conjunction with oral / facial icing techniques, facial massage, lingual / labial oral motor exercises and articulation therapy.
