Speech Therapy

At NIRT, Speech Pathology Specialist have designed Speech Therapy to address communication problems, memory loss and swallowing dysfunction. These treatment plans can focus on comprehension skills for written and verbal communication as well as cognitive status, which may include memory, orientation and reasoning skills. The components of speech production include: phonation, producing sound; resonance; intonation, variance of pitch; and voice. For patients with swallowing disorders, we work to address oral muscle strength and function for speaking and for safe eating and drinking.
