Speech & language treatment

Our Northern Virginia-based speech therapists and pathologists will always develop the proper rehabilitation plan in the effort to help you reach your highest motor, neurological and overall oral capabilities. We provide a wide range of services to help you achieve the highest possible level of speech fluency and/or swallowing ability.

  • Aphasia - treatment focusing on reading, writing, speaking, comprehension, word finding and math skills
  • Cognition and memory – developing strategies for patients to use to improve attention, problem solving and memory
  • Facial weakness – emphasizing the movement and coordination of weakened facial muscles in therapy to improve the quality of speech
  • Swallowing – using modified barium swallow studies (MBS), a videofluoroscopy, an X-ray analyzing an individual’s swallowing biomechanics, swallowing exercises and patient education on identifying appropriate diet textures, speech therapy patients will be able to reduce the risk of aspiration and improve swallowing ability
  • Voice – Concentrating on patients with organic or functional voice disorders, our speech therapists and pathologists will be able to aid an individual’s vocal quality, reduce vocal cord abuse, manage nodules, optimize breathing patterns and increase speaking volume
