Enhancing Communication Through Speech Therapy
At Howard Head, the therapy process begins with a comprehensive evaluation by a licensed speech language pathologist, who assesses the patients’ specific needs, creates a customized treatment plan and sets achievable goals for improvement. Therapy sessions may include exercises for articulation, voice modulation, language comprehension and cognitive rehabilitation. Therapists use AAC devices like simple picture boards or advanced computer-based systems that use text or voice output to help individuals express themselves. Pediatric speech and language therapists often use playful techniques and games to maintain motivation and work closely with their patient to track progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed. The team also provides guidance and support to patients’ families to ensure that progress continues outside of therapy sessions.
Howard Head Sports Medicine can help play a vital role in enhancing the lives of those seeking assistance with speech and language difficulties. Whether it is a child on the path to development or an adult athlete recovering from a head injury, the specialized care team at HHSM helps individuals communicate with confidence and clarity, contributing to their overall well-being and quality of life.
