Speech therapist consultation and therapy for adultsSee available time slots
A speech therapist is a specialist dealing with speech and swallowing disorders whose help may be required by people of all ages. In the case of adults, a speech therapist diagnoses speech disorders and restores, corrects, maintains or, if necessary, compensates for speech. A speech therapist assesses the comprehension and production of oral and written speech, speech characteristics (voice, pronunciation, fluency, etc.) and speech-related muscle function. A speech therapist also assesses the swallowing function and provides therapy. In the case of swallowing disorders, there are problems swallowing food or liquids and swallowing may often be followed by coughing or a lumpy feeling in the throat, etc.
People who have lost all or part of their ability to speak as a result of a stroke may need the help of a speech therapist. Speech and swallowing disorders often accompany Parkinson’s disease, for example. Damage to cognitive abilities also affects speech and communication, which in turn affect a person’s ability to cope on a day-to-day basis. A speech therapist can also help in case of any such problems. Working with a speech therapist, it is possible to find ways to maintain speech function and adapt the communication environment.
