Speech Therapy is the corrective or rehabilitative treatment of physical and/or cognitive deficits/disorders resulting in difficulty with verbal communication. This includes both speech (articulation, intonation, rate, intensity) and language (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and both receptive and expressive language, including reading and writing).
A speech-language pathologist (SLP) is a professional who is trained to evaluate and treat disorders of speech, language, cognition, and swallowing. SLPs work to develop and restore the speech of individuals with communication disorders; usually these disorders are the result of traumas such as surgery or stroke. SLPs also help retrain patients in breathing, swallowing, and muscle control.
Medicare Home Health recipients can receive speech therapy in their place of residence, which may include either the home or residential facility.
Based upon a complete evaluation, our SLPs develop a personalized and consistent rehabilitation program, in conjunction with a patient’s physician, and use a variety of treatment techniques.
When appropriate, our SLPs provide family or caregiver training to reinforce and enhance the benefits of treatment to ensure better, faster recoveries… and fewer return visits to the physician’s office for additional treatment or intervention.
