Speech therapy aims to assess and treat communication problems, speech disorders, and difficulty in swallowing. Children or adults that experience difficulty in communicating may also suffer from mental health and behavioral issues, low confidence levels, and poor social skills. A qualified speech pathologist can help people with these issues as well.
What can I Expect
From Speech Therapy?
Speech therapy is recommended for people suffering from speech disorders developed during childhood or caused by an injury or illness, such as a brain injury or stroke. Depending on your condition and treatment, when you undergo therapy from a speech pathologist, you can expect to:
Improve your ability to understand and express thoughts, ideas, and feelings
Enhance your ability for problem-solving in an independent environment
Improve swallowing and biting techniques
Gain fluency in speech
Develop practical social skills
Make safe and competent decisions
Increase self-confidence and independence
Better your quality of life
Some speech disorders are noticeable in childhood and improve with age. However, in some cases, they continue into adulthood and need long-term therapy and maintenance. A communication disorder, on the other hand, can result from a stroke or other medical condition. At Coastal Home Rehabilitation, we provide consistent support and effective treatment to improve these conditions. We even offer speech therapy at home, if required.
