Speech Therapy services are available 3-5 times a week at Johnson Memorial Health Services. Scheduling is done through the Physical Therapy Department.
Speech Therapists are involved in the assessment and rehabilitation of communication and swallowing disorders. Speech therapists will evaluate an individual’s ability to swallow and then set up an appropriate type or texture of diet. Speech therapists also work on methods of communication and cognitive testing to help assess individual needs so they can continue to communicate with others and organize their thought processes.
Disorders commonly seen by Speech Language Pathologists include:
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Developmental Delays (Children)
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Hearing Impairments
- Cancer (Head, Neck and Throat)
