Dysphasia is a language disorder that creates a difficulty with comprehension. It occurs when the areas of the brain responsible for turning thoughts into spoken language are damaged and can’t function properly. Consequently, people with dysphasia often have difficulty with verbal communication. Dysphasia is caused by brain damage.
Speech therapists work with muscle deficits of speech, swallowing, and facial expressions. In addition, cognitive challenges can help increase the functioning of the brain to problem-solve many of life’s daily activities. Our speech and language therapists at Therapy Solutions are prepared to evaluate and treat both adults and children with speech, language, and swallowing problems. They can also pinpoint and decrease issues with cognitive and communicative function caused by injuries or underlying conditions.
How will speech therapy improve speech in myself or a loved one?
Just like muscles of the body need strengthening and coordination, so do the muscles of the tongue and throat to make proper speech. Our speech therapists use neurological exercises and speech exercises to help patients with a wide array of speech/language difficulties.They also work to improve understanding, pronunciation, and forming of speech, in order to improve communication, socialization, and independence.
