Communication and swallowing disorders can negatively affect our ability to participate in everyday activities. Whether you are the parent of a child who has a speech delay or are someone who acquired a speech impediment later in life, Randolph Health's trained speech therapists will work to improve your condition and quality of life.
Randolph Health's speech therapy program provides services for children and adults with speech and/or swallowing disorders, whether they result from brain trauma, a stroke or a condition existing since birth.
Our speech therapists evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and determine the appropriate course of treatment. Based on the assessment, therapists work with you and your family to develop goals and establish an individualized treatment plan.
