SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY

CONTACT: (608) 745-5956

 

Humans are unique in their ability to articulate such a complex system of languages. Most infants are born with the ability to learn whatever language they are introduced to. On occasion, there may be roadblocks to successful communication.  When the ability to communicate is impaired, we are often left frustrated. In the worst situations, one may even stop attempting to communicate if their messages are not received.

Speech-language pathologists work with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in assessing and treating speech, language, cognitive and swallowing problems. Whether the difficulty is the result of autism, speech or language disorders, cognitive disorders or a medical condition, our staff of speech-language pathologists have the training and resources available to evaluate and treat these disorders.

Fortunately, the human brain can learn, and relearn language skills. Even in cases of debilitating illness, further loss of communication skills can be slowed, and sometimes even reversed.

If you or a family member may benefit from speech or language therapies, we encourage you to give us a call at (608) 745-5956 to set up a consultation or to have specific questions answered. Also, if you have any questions about insurance coverage, do not hesitate to call and ask.
