Speech and Language Therapy

With respect to neurorehabilitation, Speech and Language therapy involves working with individuals whose speech, language, swallowing and eating are affected following a brain or spinal injury or neurological condition. It involves working with the neurologically ill patients to develop verbal and non-verbal strategies of communication. Brain injury can cause impairment of speech, language and swallowing abilities, resulting in the three main conditions for which speech and language therapists are uniquely qualified to treat. To address these speech deficits, Speech therapists assess these problems and inform the rehabilitation team and family about suitable communication methods as well as advice about food and fluid consistency.
