Conditions That Require Speech Therapy Services
If your loved one has had a stroke, you may know what Aphasia is. Aphasia is a communication disorder in which patients struggle finding the right words to articulate their thoughts. Their speech can be unclear or halting. Speech Therapy can help patients concentrate and put their thoughts and words together more effectively.
Some patients have trouble words together in the correct order or have difficulty moving their lips correctly to form the words they’re trying to say. Speech therapy can help patients by slowing down their speech and forcing them to say the words correctly and in the right order. Repeating certain words and phrases can also help a patient’s speech.
A number of medical conditions can cause older patients to have trouble swallowing including strokes, dental issues, pneumonia, dry mouth, etc. Trouble swallowing can cause speech issues. A speech therapist may recommend certain accommodations to help alleviate swallowing problems including special positions for eating or modified utensils.
Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder commonly seen in those with diseases that affect the nervous system causing weakness or paralysis such as Parkinson’s. Speech may be slurred, slow, or mumbled making patients hard to understand. Speech therapists will identify the specific issues causing Dysarthria and evaluate the patient’s muscle and breathing patterns to find the best methods for improving their speech. Therapists may work with their lip and tongue movements, their breathing patterns, and help them slow down their speech to better form words and sentences.
Patients suffering from dementia can often benefit from speech therapy. Therapists can help loved ones better communicate using a number of techniques involving familiar sounds, simple speech patterns with simple words, and familiar visual cues. The goal is to help patients retain their ability to communicate with loved ones for as long as possible
