St.Vincent Speech and Language Rehabilitation program specializes in the evaluation and treatment of pediatric and adult patients with speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing disorders. Our goal is to help patients achieve optimal communication abilities through services providing in the "Spirit of Caring."
Our therapy treats the following conditions:
Stuttering disorders treatment is available for pediatric and adult patients.
Voice disorders evaluation may include use of videostroboscopy (videotaped evaluation of the larynx) to further evaluate voice problems such as vocal nodules, vocal polyps, and vocal cord paralysis. See Voice Rehabilitation for more information.
Laryngectomy (from cancer of the larynx) rehabilitation may include voice prosthesis evaluation and placement.
Neurological speech-language disorders associated with stroke, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, progressive neurological disorders, or vocal cord paralysis are treated with speech therapy
Swallowing disorders (dysphagia) treatment is provided for adults and children. Adults are evaluated using a three-phase esophagram (an X-ray procedure) and then treated with diet modifications, swallowing compensations, and oral, pharyngeal and laryngeal exercises. Pediatric evaluations include the three-phase esophagram and/or a clinical feeding evaluation. Treatment involves oral stimulation and exercises, diet modifications, swallowing compensations and family education.
Communication disorders, including:
Aphasia: impairment of language, which may affect auditory comprehension, verbal expression, reading, writing and mathematical skills
Apraxia: impairment of voluntary control of speech movement.
Dysarthria: difficulties speaking due to motor weakness, slowness or coordination of the tongue or lips.
Cognitive linguistic disorders: impairment of attention, memory, and problem solving and reasoning skills.
Tone, rate and volume control disorders
Our speech-language pathologists are at the master’s level and are licensed and certified. These specialists work closely with the patient and other therapy team members to provide an individualized, multi-disciplinary treatment plan to help achieve maximum communication results.
