Speech/Language Pathology and Therapy
Our speech-language pathologist addresses speech production, vocal production, swallowing difficulties and language needs through speech therapy. This is provided in the hospital, in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, and in our long term care facility (Extended Care Unit).
Common treatments range from physical strengthening exercises, instructive or repetitive practice or drills, the use of audiovisual aids and the introduction of strategies to facilitate functional communication such as sign language or the use of picture symbols.
