AG Therapy Services

Speech therapy for adults focuses on promoting communication independence by improving an individual’s comprehension, expressive language, articulation, reading and writing skills, as well as cognitive ability and swallowing difficulties. Though some speech and language difficulties may arise as a child, many adults experience communication breakdowns stemming from strokes, traumatic brain injuries, and neurodegenerative disorders. I work with adults and their caregivers to decrease communication breakdowns and address challenges in swallowing and cognitive communication.
