Both children and adults need the ability to communicate clearly. Novant Health Rehabilitation Center offers the highest quality adult and pediatric speech therapy services.
Our accredited therapists can help you recover language and thinking skills which have been interrupted and show you alternative ways to communicate. Speech therapy can also help improve swallowing difficulties.
Our speech therapy services include:
Swallowing Evaluation and Treatment
Evaluation of the oral and pharyngeal phases of swallowing. Treatment may include oral motor exercises, diet modifications, or compensatory techniques.
Retraining of attention, memory, or reasoning skills affected by brain injury or stroke.
Treatment of dysarthria (slurred speech), apraxia, or aphasia caused by neurogenic conditions.
Clinical Feeding Evaluations
Evaluations of infants and children with failure to thrive, sensory feeding disorders, gastrostomy feeding tube issues and oral motor hypersensitity. Recommendations may include diet modifications, compensatory techniques, or modified barium swallow studies.
A type of electrical stimulation for swallowing which strengthens the muscles of the face and neck. VitalStim-certified speech pathologists apply stimulation while a patient eats and drinks.
Therapy for children or adults who stutter. Techniques may include breath control, relaxation, and behavior modification.
Modified Barium Swallow Studies
An objective assessment of swallowing performed by a speech pathologist and radiologist. Studies are recorded on video in real time and analyzed. Following the study, the team may recommend diet modifications, compensatory positions for swallowing, or further swallowing therapy.
Augmentative Communication Evaluations
Evaluation of nonverbal patients followed by recommendations for either low tech or electronic communication devices, and training in the use of these devices.
We offer comprehensive speech-language therapy services for pediatric patients with articulation and language disorders, developmental delay, central auditory processing disorder, and autism spectrum disorders.
