Speech Therapy at Home

Speech Therapy at Home

Speech therapy aims to assess and treat communication problems, speech disorders, and difficulty in swallowing. Children or adults that experience difficulty in communicating may also suffer from mental health and behavioral issues, low confidence levels, and poor social skills. A qualified speech pathologist can help people with these issues as well.

What Can I Expect From Speech Therapy?

Speech therapy is recommended for people suffering from speech disorders developed during childhood or caused by an injury or illness, such as a brain injury or stroke. Depending on your condition and treatment, when you undergo therapy from a speech pathologist, you can expect to:

  • Improve your ability to understand and express thoughts, ideas, and feelings
  • Enhance your ability for problem-solving in an independent environment
  • Improve swallowing and biting techniques
  • Gain fluency in speech
  • Reduce stuttering
  • Develop practical social skills
  • Make safe and competent decisions
  • Increase self-confidence and independence
  • Better your quality of life

How Long Do I Need Speech Therapy?

At Coastal Home Rehabilitation, our experts will ensure you get the best results from speech therapy. The duration of therapy differs from person-to-person and depends on several factors, such as:

  • Your age
  • The type of speech disorder and its severity
  • The frequency of therapy sessions
  • Presence of an underlying medical condition and its treatment

Some speech disorders are noticeable in childhood and improve with age. However, in some cases, they continue into adulthood and need long-term therapy and maintenance. A communication disorder, on the other hand, can result from a stroke or other medical condition. At Coastal Home Rehabilitation, we provide consistent support and effective treatment to improve these conditions. We even offer speech therapy at home, if required.
