Speech and Language Therapy

Our speech language pathologists assess and treat clients who have difficulty swallowing.

Because speech language pathologists have so much knowledge about the muscles in the mouth, tongue and neck, they are well placed to help people who experience trouble swallowing (called dysphagia).

Our speech language pathologists create treatment plans that reinforce hospital-based recommendations on feeding and nutrition, to keep clients safe and in their home. We teach and train clients and care providers to optimize the client’s nutritional intake and to decrease the client’s risk of dehydration, malnutrition or respiratory complications associated with dysphagia.
