Our approach to speech therapy

Communication and eating meals are important aspects of everyday life.

The inability to communicate effectively or swallow safely has a profound impact on our health and social wellbeing.

Our speech therapy team focuses on improving, restoring, and maintaining the ability to communicate and eat safely.  We are here to coach you or your child expertly and patiently on improving communication skills and swallowing ability.

  • adult swallowing difficulties
  • ALS
  • aphasia
  • apraxia
  • articulation
  • autism
  • cognition
  • concussion
  • developmental delays
  • dysfluency/stuttering

Tests and treatments

Speech pathologists use modern technology, best practice assessments and measures to evaluate and develop individual treatment plans.

  • Modified barium swallow studies - a special x-ray that helps identify why you are having trouble swallowing
  • Fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) - a procedure used to assess how well you swallow
  • Standardized testing across all areas
  • Lee Silverman voice treatment (LSVT) - this activity helps people adjust how loud they think their voice is, so they can speak at a regular volume
  • LOUD CROWD for Parkinson’s disease - specifically designed to address the voice and swallowing challenges commonly experienced by people living with Parkinson’s disease
  • Evidence based therapy
