Speech and Language Pathology

Our Speech and Language Therapy treatment at HealthBridge focuses on providing communication skills and tools to patients with speech, language and communication difficulties. Our Speech-Language Pathologist works together with the patient and family forming a therapy partnership. Our goal is to provide an unparalleled level of speech and language treatment in a warm, friendly and comfortable environment.

 

Our Approach to Treatment

Patients participating in our Speech and Language Therapy services undergo a comprehensive assessment prior to beginning therapy to determine a treatment plan based on their unique needs. Our Speech-Language Pathologist uses formal assessments, behavioral observations, family report, and background information about the patient to determine the severity of the speech and/or language problem that is present.  Based upon this information, our Speech-Language Pathologist designs individual treatment programs and carefully evaluates these programs on an ongoing basis in order to make changes as appropriate depending on the patient’s progress.

 

Family or caregiver involvement is the key to a successful treatment. A family information period is offered to educate those involved in treatment about vocabulary and strategies that are being used/taught to improve their family member’s communications and language skills.
