Speech Pathology

Our Speech and Language Pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Speech services conduct initial screening for communication and swallowing disorders and continue with assessment, diagnosis, intervention and treatment.

"Speech therapy is an art that deserves to be more widely known. You cannot imagine the acrobatics your tongue mechanically performs in order to produce all the sounds of a language."
