Who is a candidate for speech therapy?

To determine if you or a family member is a candidate for speech therapy, they complete an initial comprehensive speech and language assessment. The assessment evaluates the ability to speak, chew, eat, swallow, hear well, express emotions, and more. 

What can I expect during speech therapy sessions?

During speech therapy, you can expect:

  • Improved speech quality
  • Better communication skills
  • Optimal social communication and cognition
  • Easier eating, speaking, chewing, or swallowing

You might participate in individual or group therapy. During the sessions, a therapist teaches you ways to improve speech, feeding, or social functioning. 

The skilled High Quality Home Therapy experts offer feeding therapy to retrain the brain to use mouth muscles in a more coordinated fashion. 

They also provide craniosacral therapy, using gentle massage and integrative approaches to improve oral motor function in people with tight muscles in the face, jaw, head, or neck.

The High Quality Home Therapy specialists offer educational programming and training for caregivers and educators. They follow up with you or a family member to ensure long-lasting success.
