Speech/Language Therapy

Trinity’s speech/language pathologists assist patients with all aspects of communication and work with patients that are experiencing dysphagia or swallowing problems. Treatment strategies involve teaching compensatory techniques to improve swallowing, auditory comprehension, reading and writing comprehension, cognitive functioning including memory, problem solving , and expressive language skills. The primary focus of the speech/language pathologist is to return the patient to the highest potential of communication and swallowing for his or her environment.
