Speech and Language Pathology Services

Our Speech and Language Therapy treatment at Touchstone focuses on providing communication skills and tools to patients with speech, language and communication difficulties. Our Speech-Language Pathologist works together with the patient and family forming a therapy partnership. Therapists use evidence-based modalities to address conditions such as aphasia, apraxia and dysarthria.

Our Approach to Treatment

Patients participating in our Speech and Language Therapy services undergo a comprehensive assessment prior to beginning therapy to determine a treatment plan based on their unique needs. Our Speech-Language Pathologist uses formal assessments, behavioral observations, family report, and background information about the patient to determine the severity of the speech and/or language problem that is present.  Based upon this information, our Speech-Language Pathologist designs individual treatment programs and carefully evaluates these programs on an ongoing basis in order to make changes as appropriate depending on the patient’s progress.
