Speech-Language Pathology

Speech-Language Pathologists, also known as Speech Therapists, evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients who have speech, language, cognitive-communication, and/or swallowing disorders.  The goal of speech therapy is to assisst the patient in achieving his/her optimum level of communication.  Upon completion of Bedside Swallow Evaluations and/or Swallow Studies, speech-language pathologists determine the safest liquid/diet consistency, and any feeding precautions/strategies if indicated.  Swallowing therapy (e.g. VitalStim) is also available.
