Speech Therapy for Adults
Speech and language impairments may develop in adulthood or be continually present from childhood. Adults may seek guidance from speech-language therapists to improve their business communication skills, reduce an accent or even work on their speech articulation. There are many reasons seeking a speech therapist may be the best option for you. Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) have the right tools and training to assess your needs and provide the best treatment plans, while also equipping you with exercises to use in and out of therapy sessions.
At Granite Bay Speech, we expand our speech therapy services to all walks of life. We work together with our adult clients to help in the areas of speech, language, and cognitive communication. An SLP can work with you to improve in areas of weakness and support your communication stengths. The goal of speech therapy is to improve communication skills which will in turn improve relationships and interactions with those around you.
Stroke-Related Speech Issues
When a stroke occurs, the effects can be far-reaching, however, aphasia is one common symptom of stroke. Aphasia inhibits the ability to express oneself or to understand others. Speech-language pathologists (SLP) specialize in helping patients regain and strengthen their ability to communicate effectively.
Following a stroke, first meeting with an SLP at Granite Bay Speech will be an initial evaluation to help determine specific challenges, and will allow the SLP to begin developing a specialized speech therapy plan.
