Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-language therapy includes the evaluation and treatment of speech, language, cognitive and feeding/swallowing skills. Although the terms speech and language are often used interchangeably, it is important to understand the difference between them.

 

 

Language is a symbolic, rule governed system used to convey a message. Symbols can include spoken/written words or gestures, while the “rules” of language include appropriate use of syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology and pragmatics. Language disorders include:

 

  • Receptive language disorders
  • Expressive language disorders
  • Aphasia

 

Although auditory processing disorder is considered an auditory disorder, language processing skills are usually affected and therefore targeted in evaluation and treatment.

Bodylink Speech Therapy provides comprehensive, individualized speech-language treatment for adults.

In addition to speech-language therapy, we also provide services to actors and professionals including:

 

  • Accent reduction
  • Voice training
  • Personal communication and public speaking coaching

 

If you have questions regarding speech-language treatment or professional speaking training, feel free to schedule a free 15 minute consultation or email us for further information. We look forward to hearing from you!
