Rebuilding Communication Skills
Communicating is a critical social skill, vital to learning, working and other daily interactions. Patients with conditions that limit their ability to speak, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, head and neck lymphedema, or other physical impairments feel that loss keenly. The good news: Speech therapists can teach patients how to manage speech clarity, as well as comprehension, chewing and swallowing.
The speech therapists at Olympic Medical Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation work with children, teenagers and adults, providing a private, supportive environment for evaluations and developing treatment programs customized for each patient’s needs.
