Speech Language Therapy

The Gift of Being Able to Speak and Eat again

Enjoying conversation and digging into a delicious meal are activities normally taken for granted—until suddenly you can’t do them. Whether a client’s speech, language or swallowing problems are due to stroke, brain injury, or disease, Ageility’s speech-language pathologists (SLPs) bring hope. We offer a wide range of programs and services designed to restore clients’ ability to communicate and to swallow. Our whole-person speech therapy programs address everything from word recall and cognitive functioning to speaking clearly and eating safely.

 

EXPERT CONSULTS, EXPERT CARE

Ageility SLPs are certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). These specialists are highly trained in assessment, treatment planning and care. They work with clients one on one to help them achieve effective communication and better swallowing through highly personalized and integrated speech therapy services.

SPEECH AND LANGUAGE PROBLEMS: EMPOWERING ONE’S VOICE

Stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s and other diseases can lead to speaking and thinking issues. Ageility SLPs help clients relearn how to use mouth muscles to control word formation and achieve smoother speech. Executive functioning, memory, and recall services help treat language deficits. We strive to reduce clients’ frustrations and help them be understood.

 

SWALLOWING DISORDERS: BRINGING BACK THE JOY OF EATING

Ageility SLPs treat swallowing problems by advising head and mouth positionings, teaching exercises to help swallowing muscles function better, and finding a diet that’s easier to eat. SLPs may also refer clients to other specialists, such as dietitians or ear/nose/throat doctors (ENTs).
