Sometimes referred to as speech therapy, speech-language pathology addresses the speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing skills.
Speech-language pathologists help treat:
- Prolonged sounds and syllables
- Pitch and volume problems
- Voice quality
Lake Health speech-language pathologists are specially trained in Deep Pharyngeal Neuromuscular Stimulation (DPNS), a technique proven to be highly effective for certain types of swallowing disorders.
Speech-language pathology is available at Lake West Medical Center in Willoughby and TriPoint Medical Center in Concord.
