Not your Average Clinicians

Not only do our Clinicians specialize in speech and language therapy they also evaluate and treat those suffering problems while eating and drinking. They often oversee a person’s diet as well as their overall physiology in order to determine what consistencies are best for their unique circumstances.

BTW: Our tongue is just another muscle in our body so it makes sense that a speech pathologist can help you with feeding and swallowing issues too.

A speech therapy clinic that has more than one swallow specialist on staff, we’re #NotYourAverageClinic

Back to school season doesn’t have to be hectic

The back-to-school season doesn’t have to be hectic.  Say hello early before the school year begins.  It’s never a bad idea to set aside some time to meet and greet the key people in your child’s school for the upcoming year.  Greetings and social interactions are such a big focus of the work we do.  Yet we take this action for granted.  Consistent communication with the school is essential, not just during the school year.

Make arrangements to visit the school before it opens.  Practice the combination of the lockers.  Obtain a schedule of school events, both curricular and extracurricular. Of course, it is best to start with small requests before asking for the big favors as the year continues on (things like helping with packing their lunch for the day, being alert when class is about to start, or managing a difficult classmate).

Once you find the school professionals are good listeners then you can begin to explain the uniqueness of your child.  Back-to-school season doesn’t have to be hectic!

Speech Interuppted

Neurogenic stuttering is what we call it when a person has difficulty producing speech in a normal, smooth fashion. Individuals with fluency disorders may have speech that sounds fragmented (almost as if they are being cut off mid sentence) or halting, with frequent interruptions and problems producing words without a struggle.

 

Some injuries or diseases that could bring on Neurogenic Stuttering may include:
Cerebrovascular accident (stroke), with or without aphasia
Head trauma
Ischemic attacks (temporary obstruction of blood flow in the Brain)
Tumors, cysts, and other neoplasms
Degenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis
Other diseases, such as meningitis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and AIDS
Drug-related causes such as side-effects of some medications
