Our speech therapy program services children and adults with a wide variety of disabilities or conditions, including stroke, cerebral palsy, a traumatic brain injury and more. Our speech-language pathology (SLP) treatment is the newest service that we offer.
It is restorative and compensatory in focus, aiming to improve impaired function via re-training with selected hierarchical exercises, as well as compensate for deficits that are not amenable to re-training.
