When it comes to speech therapy, many people believe that it only helps children. This is not entirely true, speech therapy also works wonderfully on adults and helps them communicate, think, and safely eat and drink.
A speech therapy usually involves evaluating and treating people who experience trouble with speech, language, cognitive functions, and as well as swallowing disorders.
Adults develop speech disorders due to medical conditions such as a stroke, traumatic brain injury, concussions, or a neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis, ALS, and Parkinson’s disease.
At Home Nursing and Therapy Services, adults suffering from speech disorders are assessed by licensed speech pathologists. A licensed speech pathologist can help a patient with slurred speech to improve speech sound. Additionally, a speech therapist can also help a patient with cognitive disorders, short-term memory, planning, and organization.
The process of speech therapy begins with identifying the areas of improvement in a patient and working towards achieving it. This helps in setting goals and as the therapy continues the goals are reviewed and modified based on a patient’s progress.
