Practice, Participation, and Progress feat. Miss Allie

I had a wise professor in graduate school once tell me, “Home practice is so important. Patients see their clinicians for maybe an hour per week, but they are home the rest of the time.  Just think of how much progress could be made at home!”

 

Caregivers can sometimes be overwhelmed by the idea of home practice.  It is often assumed that home practice means sitting at the dining room table every night, practicing word after word for an hour.  This just isn’t the case!  Home practice doesn’t have to be difficult or burdening, or even structured!  It can be integrated into everyday activities!  Going to the grocery store?  Have your loved one help create the shopping list and practice saying food items.  Driving? Encourage your loved one to read the directions.  Cooking dinner?  Ask your loved one to help you with the recipe. Watching the news?  Discuss current events.

Any activity can be turned into an opportunity to support language and make progress towards goals.  Talk to our clinicians today about ways to integrate speech therapy into the home!  Practice.  Participation.  Progress.

 

Providing you the means to achieve as well as insights from our very own Miss Allie!  We’re #NotYourAverageClinic

Speech Therapy for Adults

Speech therapy is relevant for indications of Parkinson’s disease, brain injury, stroke, and many other underlying medical conditions. A wide range of disorders affecting speech and swallowing include apraxia, dysarthria, dysphagia and orofacial myofunctional disorders.

These disorders may impact communication skills, coordinated muscular movements, difficulty in articulating words as well as swallowing, and paralysis of facial muscles. Our speech-language pathologists may also address patients focus on tasks, and memory, reasoning, and problem-solving. Other cognitive strategies may be explored for executive functioning (such as goal-setting, planning, self-awareness, and self-monitoring.

 

Many people believe we only provide therapy to children- for stuttering or speech impediments, we are really so much more. We’re #NotYourAverageClinic
