Speech Language and Swallowing

Language is our most human characteristic. It is essential to learning, working and enjoying family life and driendshipos. There are many ways to express language. Speaking, using sign language, writing, and using computerized communication devices are some of the most common ones. The professionals who are educated to assess speech and language development and to treat laguage and speech disorders are speech-language pathologists (sometimes informally referred to as speech therapists).

Speech-language pathologists can also help people with swallowing disorders to regain ability to enjoy meals and snacks with family and friends. Speech Language Pathologists work with each family to meet individual needs and customize therapy for optimal benefits. If you or a family member feel you may benefit from Speech Therapy, please contact our Rehabilitation Services department at (906) 341-3254 or toll-free at
