At North Valley Hospital, our speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat children and adults with a variety of impairments. Individuals seen by our therapists often have suffered from neurological trauma (traumatic brain injury, stroke), degenerative disease (Parkinson’s, dementia and ALS), or congenital and developmental delays.
Speech-language pathologists provide an individualized treatment program for each patient that focuses on their return to independent living, working and social life.
Disorders managed by speech-language pathologists include:
- Feeding/swallowing (dysphagia) including use of VitalStim electrical stimulation
- Speech and language (aphasia and apraxia)
- Cognition, including memory, attention, problem-solving, thought organization, reasoning/judgment, new learning and social skills
Our therapists also work closely with Physical Therapy
and Occupational Therapy
to provide each patient with a full recovery, both mentally and physically.
