Speech Therapy

At Saad Healthcare, we believe that the ability to communicate is a precious gift; you can't take for granted the ability to say, "I love you." Our speech pathologists treat patients with speech, language, swallowing, voice, or fluency disorders that may result from brain injury or deterioration, stroke, hearing loss, mental retardation, voice pathology, cleft palate, or emotional problems. Our program is directed toward people who cannot produce speech sounds or cannot produce them clearly; those with rhythm and fluency problems such as stuttering; people with voice disorders such as inappropriate pitch or harsh voice; those with problems understanding or producing language; those with cognitive communication impairments; and those with swallowing difficulties.

Every treatment plan is individually tailored for the patient's specific needs. Treatment may include counseling for both patients and families, helping them to cope with the stress that frequently accompanies communication disorders. Contact us today to learn more.


Specialized Services

Additionally our specialized modalities include vital stims. Vital stim used for treatment for Oropharyngeal and Dysphagiathat uses electrical stimulation with exercises in order to strengthen the nerve mechanism to improve swallowing.
