An In-Home Speech Therapist Can Address Numerous Health Conditions
Therapy can be medically ordered for any aged individual. Speech therapists often work alongside other specialists to help with such issues as:
- Swallowing Difficulties – If facial, throat or palate muscles are weakened, it can make it difficult to swallow food or fluid. A therapist can help to improve swallowing through strengthening techniques.
- Voice Issues – A therapist can help with the quality of voice and improve voices that are hoarse, have poor volume, are strained, or are affected in other ways.
- Communication Cognitive Delays – Therapists are also trained to work on the cognitive issues that impede communication skills such as attention or memory issues.
- Language Issues – For those suffering from language formation issues, such as sentence formation, syntax, and semantics, therapy can be beneficial.
When suffering from one of the previous conditions or other speech issues, a trained in-home speech therapist can help improve communication abilities.
What Medical Issues Utilize Speech Therapy?
Medical conditions that often require therapy include:
- Stroke – After suffering from a stroke, many patients may experience partial paralysis and weakness that can affect vocal skills.
- Genetic and Birth Disorders – Genetic disorders such as Down syndrome, cleft palate, and cerebral palsy can require therapy to aid with communication.
- Cancer of the Ears, Nose and Throat – Otolaryngological cancers can affect hearing as well as speech. After tumors are removed and treatment is given, speech therapists can help to restore communication skills.
- Dementia and Alzheimer’s – Patients who suffer from dementia may need therapy to help them maintain the cognitive process of vocal communication.
- Parkinson’s – The tremors and muscle problems associated with Parkinson’s disease not only affect the patient’s voice but often their ability to properly swallow as well.
- Multiple Sclerosis – Multiple sclerosis is a disease that can affect the muscles and cause partial paralysis.
- Hearing Impairment – As patients age, their hearing will be affected, which can often affect the integrity of a person’s voice.
- Feeding Difficulties – Some illnesses can inhibit swallowing and may require a therapist to improve the mouth, throat, and facial muscles.
- Traumatic Brain Injury – After a brain injury, many patients may have to relearn speech patterns to return to their normal communication ability.
