Significant trauma to the mouth or throat can affect your speech and communication. Injuries such as burns, lacerations or muscle trauma can be especially challenging to overcome, but our experienced speech therapists can help!
After a thorough assessment, your therapist will put together a tailored program to help you regain your communication skills and improve your speech, chewing and swallowing.
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, also causes damage to the brain that can result in speech, thinking, language, and swallowing problems. These problems can affect your performance in school, at work, and in everyday activities.
A speech therapist can test speech, language, and thinking skills. They can also look at how you eat and swallow after your injury.
