Assessment and treatment of cognitive and communication problems that result from brain injury.

These problems vary from individual to individual but may include difficulties with attention, memory, word finding, comprehension, reasoning and problem solving and executive function skills (planning, goal setting, initiating and self- awareness and evaluation).

Our goal is to help the individual progress to the most independent level of functioning possible.  Therapy will focus on regaining lost skills and learning ways to compensate for abilities that have changed due to the brain injury.

Stuttering is a developmental disorder of neuromotor control of speech, usually beginning as early as two years of age.  The large majority of people who start to stutter will spontaneously recover or outgrow the problem. Stuttering usually is influenced by language production.  In addition, stuttering typically is perpetuated by the individual’s temperament and complex learning, and the response of the person’s environment to his/her speech. 

As we work effectively with clients who exhibit these types of aspects or characteristics, we usually also will emphasize dealing with the reactive components of the person’s stuttering problem (behaviors, feelings, and thoughts).  Our ultimate goal with most clients is to have them become their own therapists.

Assessment and treatment of swallowing and feeding problems for clients of all ages.

Children may exhibit feeding and swallowing problems due to oral motor or oropharyngeal swallowing disorders.  Some children may demonstrated poor oral intake or be unable to transition to age appropriate food consistencies due to sensory and/or behavioral issues.

Adults may exhibit swallowing and feeding problems following a stroke or other neurological event, cancer of the mouth or throat, or numerous other causes.

Our goal is to maximize safe feeding and swallowing and improve nutritional status through evaluation, treatment and family support.
