Speech & Swallowing Rehabilitation

Overview

There are a variety of underlying physical or mental conditions that can make verbal communication difficult. Through individualized, one-on-one therapy, Saint Clare’s speech pathologists may be able to improve speech and language skills in adults who have speech or cognitive conditions that interfere with communication.

For adults with difficulty swallowing, we offer swallow testing as well as rehabilitation to help them improve swallowing.

Our Approach

Adult Speech & Swallowing Therapy: For adults with speech, voice, cognitive, or swallowing problems, the speech pathologists at Saint Clare’s are ready to help. Specialized treatments can improve many communication or swallowing problems related to:

We recommend that adults with swallowing difficulties speak to their physician about their concern and discuss the underlying cause. If ordered by the doctor, our licensed speech pathologists can perform a clinical swallow evaluation. If a more advanced modified barium swallow study (MBS) is recommended by your physician, we can perform this study in partnership with Saint Clare’s radiology department. Once a problem is identified, our therapists will provide expert care, setting goals and a plan of care specific to the patient’s needs.
