Speech issues are commonly seen in neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, motor neuron disease, stroke, Myasthenia Gravis, Alzheimer’s disease and spasmodic dysphonia. These diseases can cause a number of other underlying problems like weakness or muscle spasms making it difficult for afflicted individuals to communicate.
We can help individuals with various kinds of speech and language disorders:
Our speech and language therapy services include diagnosis, evaluation and therapeutic intervention to develop, improve, correct and prevent the worsening of communication disorders. We will assess the quality, pitch and volume of the patient’s voice, provide patient education and offer tips for improving vocal skills. The speech therapist will also teach physiologic exercises to enhance the strength and quality of voice, and techniques to optimise speech.
Communication problems impair both comprehension and expression; thus directly influence the patients’ psychosocial well-being. Our speech therapy programs can markedly improve communication skills of patients with neurological disorders, thus helping to maintain optimal quality of life. Click here to schedule an appointment.
