Speech & Language Therapy

For children and adults who have speech and language challenges or impairments, the Mary Greeley Medical Center Rehab & Wellness Department can help.

Speech Therapy at Mary Greeley Medical Center

Children and adults may need speech and language therapy for a variety of reasons: surgery, illness, injury, voice disorders, cognitive disabilities, speech delays, neurological disorders, swallowing difficulties and other conditions. Treatment options at Mary Greeley Medical Center include:

  • Improving communication both verbally and in writing, to understand both spoken and written language. In some cases, this involves helping adults and children relearn how to talk.
  • Improving problem solving, the ability to focus, organizational skills, memory strategies and other mechanisms to cope with communications difficulties
  • Reducing behaviors that can cause hoarseness or permanent voice damage
  • Coordinating with other specialty therapists for positioning and movement related to communication skills
