Speech Therapy

Speech therapy serves individuals who have speech, language, cognitive, and/or swallowing impairments such as:

  • Speech intelligibility
  • Word finding
  • Voice
  • Writing
  • Understanding of language
  • Attention
  • Reading comprehension
  • Memory
  • Expression
  • Problem Solving
  • Judgment/Reasoning
  • Organization
  • Swallowing

These impairments can be caused by chronic conditions such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, dementia, stroke, or brain injury. They can also be caused by debilitating diseases or compromised health caused by other factors.


Treatment

EvergreenHealth offers a range of services, from evaluation and diagnosis to treatment. Speech therapists use the Visi-Pitch computer system, which provides an on-screen display of various voice parameters to target treatment.

Cognitive rehabilitation works to improve attention, memory, executive function and decision-making.

Treatment is available in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and is tailored to the individual's or the family's personal goals, and builds on personal strengths while addressing areas of need in a functional way.

The goal of treatment is for the patient to reach his/her highest level of functioning and maintain appropriate safety and independence.
