Speech Therapy involves the rehabilitation of speech, language, cognitive and swallowing skills, which may deteriorate as a result of stroke, Parkinson's Disease, other neurological disorders, head trauma and cancer. When a developmental delay or medical issue is involved, speech therapy helps children acquire age-appropriate speech, language, and swallowing skills as well.
