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 work on their articulation skills. Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) have evidence-based 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.
We believe that you deserve the best, and Granite Bay Speech is here to help you accomplish your goals quickly and easily! We work together with our adult clients to accomplish speech, language, and cognitive-communication goals. The goal of speech therapy is to improve communication skills which will help improve relationships and interactions with those around you in your everyday life.
Stroke-Related Speech Issues
When a stroke occurs, the effects can be far-reaching. Aphasia is one common symptom of a stroke. Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write. Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) specialize in helping patients regain and strengthen their ability to communicate effectively.
Following a stroke, the 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.
