01 May May is Better Hearing & Speech Therapy Month!
Help promote Speech Therapy and communication for all in your community!
Heritage Pointe of Huntington is proud to partner with HTS, our rehabilitation partner, to promote May 2018 as “Better Hearing and Speech Month.”
Heritage Pointe of Huntington’s rehab services provides both speech and occupational therapy, as well as physical therapy. Not sure if speech therapy can help you? Speech therapy can help with more than just, well, speech itself and the ability to communicate. There are a few goals of speech therapy, depending on your needs:
- Communicating needs and wants
- Safe swallowing
- Verbal & written comprehension
- Hearing & auditory processing
- Caregiver education
Do you experience pain or discomfort while swallowing? Do you cough or choke frequently while eating or drinking? Speech therapy can help treat a variety of swallowing disorders (sometimes called Dysphagia).
Or, do you find you have difficulty following a conversation or often lose track of the topic? Speech therapy can also help treat the cognitive aspects of communication, such as attention, memory, and problem-solving.
Contact your doctor if you think speech therapy might be right for you. Or, for more information about therapy services at Heritage Pointe of Huntington, call or email us today. We’re happy to answer any questions and schedule a tour of our campus and rehabilitation facilities.
