At The Rehabilitation Institute of Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC), our American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) certified speech and language pathologists (SLP’s) are specifically educated and prepared to treat children and adults with speech, language and swallowing problems.
Speech therapy is effective for a wide array or disorders, diseases and rehabilitation programs including:
- Phonation disorders
- Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
- Receptive disorders
- Expressive disorders
- Stroke rehabilitation
- Cancer rehabilitation
Our SLP’s provide professional and effective services to patients who have communication disabilities. Our goal is to help you effectively develop speaking and listening skills to better your life and build successful personal, academic and professional relationships.
Our SLP’s also work with patients to improve their swallowing to the highest functional level. The ability to safely and efficiently swallow helps patients regain independence, enjoy eating again and prevent complications from illnesses such as pneumonia.
A stroke or cancer can severely impact a patient’s ability to speak and/or swallow. Speech therapy can be a great part of stroke or cancer rehabilitation to restore a patient’s quality of life.
