speech therapy for kidsTwo of the greatest human needs are the ability to communicate with others and the ability to eat and drink safely. If you are having difficulty with either of these it can impact all aspects of your life. Speech-language pathologists can help by determining the nature and extent of your impairment and designing a unique treatment plan to meet your individual needs and goals.

Our speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are experts in their field and are committed to providing the most current and thorough treatment programs to help you recover as efficiently and comprehensively as possible.

Certified Experts in Speech-Language Pathology

Our speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are experts in their field and are certified brain injury specialists (CBIS), SPEAK OUT! certified for working on speech improvements with Parkinson’s disease patients, and certified for myofascial release, a technique used with head and neck cancer patients to treat swallowing disorders.

Common Reasons for Speech Therapy

There are many language, voice, and speech disorders that can affect your communication, cognitive processing, and swallowing. Here are a few:

  • Aphasia
  • Apraxia or Dyspraxia
  • Articulation Disorders
  • Cognitive-Communication Deficits
  • Cognitive Impairment/Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
  • Dementia
  • Dysphagia (swallowing disorders)
  • Dysphonia (voice disorders)
  • Dysarthria
  • Stuttering (fluency disorders)

It’s often very common that these disorders are a result of an injury or illness like stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or concussion, neurological disease, or head and neck cancer.

VitalStim® Speech Therapy Treatment

One of the therapy techniques offered at Sheltering Arms is VitalStim®. If you are struggling with a swallowing difficulty, this neuromuscular electrical stimulation therapy approved by the FDA may make the difference between being able to eat or depending on a feeding tube. VitalStim® therapy uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles used for swallowing. One of our skilled SLPs will work with you to retrain these muscles. The repetition of the electrical currents and training sessions helps re-educate the muscles to begin swallowing again.

Speech-language pathologists at Sheltering Arms also take advantage of the latest tablet technologies to provide engaging therapy and timely, interactive feedback on your progress. This is particularly helpful if you are having challenges with speech and/or cognition.
