Communication disorders block the ability to speak and to understand speech and language. Such disorders can limit the academic, professional, and social potential of people of all ages. At the Center, we can help. Types of communication disorders we treat include:
- Articulation Disorders – difficulty making speech sounds correctly and/or weakness in the muscles of articulation.
- Stuttering – an interruption in the rhythm and flow of speech.
- Voice Disorders – problems with vocal pitch, quality, or loudness; excessive muscle tension associated with voice, or vocal cord paralysis or weakness. Also the voice problems associated with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease.
- Myofunctional Disorders – involving tongue thrust, reverse swallow, and associated speech and orthodontic problems.
At the Center, a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist evaluates you or your child’s particular communication needs, and designs an individualized treatment program. Specific, easy-to-understand instructions for home practice are provided, either audio-recorded or on handouts.
