Speech, Swallowing, and Voice Therapy

At Wellstar Speech, Swallowing and Voice Therapy Centers, we believe communication and swallowing problems should not limit a person’s functioning and enjoyment of life. Our highly skilled speech language pathologists provide comprehensive speech, swallowing and voice therapy services so we can meet our patients’ needs today and in the future.

Speech and Language Therapy

Communication barriers can be the result of a medical problem such as a stroke, brain injury or cancer. A medical problem can make it difficult for a person to produce speech sounds correctly or use their voice which is a speech disorder. A language disorder is when a person has trouble understanding others or sharing their thoughts.  Our Speech Language Pathologists can treat both speech and language disorders to enhance a  patient’s ability to communicate.

Cognitive Rehabilitation

Cognitive therapy is beneficial to patients with decreased attention, memory, and problem-solving skills which are the result of an injury or illness. Our Speech Language Pathologists provide patients with rehabilitative strategies to enhance their daily functioning.

Swallowing Therapy

Swallowing disorders can cause poor nutrition, dehydration, and aspiration pneumonia. Our Speech Language Pathologists have specialized procedures to evaluate swallowing disorders. The Modified Barium Swallow Study (MBS) or the Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) is used to assess swallowing disorders and provide treatment recommendations. In swallowing therapy, patients learn strategies, diet options, and exercises to minimize the risk of swallowing disorders.

Voice Therapy

Voice problems can be caused by a variety of medical conditions such laryngitis, overuse, vocal cord lesions, and cancer. Our Speech Language Pathologists can provide therapy to help patients attain their best possible voice.
