Speech Therapy

Speech Therapists Help with More than Speaking

When most people hear the term “speech therapist,” they think of someone who helps individuals improve their ability to talk and articulate.

While it is true that speech therapists—also known as Speech Language Pathologists, or SLPs—do help individuals resolve these issues, they also do a lot more to help individuals suffering from a myriadof other problems. Specific disorders for which SLPs provide treatment include:

  • Speech disorders such as stuttering, dysarthria (poor articulation), and resonance problems
  • Language disorders, such as aphasia, where patients have difficulty understanding or expressing thoughts, ideas, and feelings in oral or written form
  • Social communication disorders, such as those seen in individuals with autism or individuals who have suffered traumatic brain injury, where patients are unable to communicate according to commonly accepted social rules and standards
  • Cognitive-communicative disorders, such as those commonly found in individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia, who would benefit immensely from our MIND Program, or individuals recovering from a stroke or other traumatic brain injury, where patients have difficulty remembering, paying attention, problem-solving, and/or organizing their thoughts.
  • Swallowing disorders, or dysphagia, that prevent patients from eating and swallowing properly

We Provide Personalized Care and Use Premier Technology

At Blue Sky Therapy, our SLPs will use their expert tools of evaluation to assess and diagnose you or your loved one and will come up with a symptom-specific treatment program to help you achieve your goals. In many cases, our therapists use VitalStim Technology, a premier technology that uses electrical stimulation, in conjunction with traditional exercises, to strengthen and restore swallowing function.

Where applicable, your SLP will also work closely with your physical and occupational therapists, physician, and/or social worker to coordinate your care and come up with the best, most comprehensive treatment plan possible. She/he will educate family on the challenges they may face and alert them of any symptoms that require immediate attention.
