SERVICES > Speech Therapy

Speech therapy is to help people who have language, speech, swallowing and cognitive disorders resulting from a variety of causes, such as stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, cleft palate, cerebral palsy, or emotional issues.

Speech therapy services begin with initial screening for communication and swallowing disorders and continue with assessment and diagnosis, consultation for the provision of advice regarding management, intervention and treatment, and provision counseling and other follow up services for these disorders.
