Speech Therapy at Home

Speech therapy is a vital and often overlooked need for home health care patients. Adult speech therapy can alleviate many of the negative impacts that come with speech and language difficulties such as social isolation and embarrassment. It can also reduce reliance on family members and risks associated with health conditions brought on by speech challenges like poor nutrition caused by difficulty swallowing. At Traditions Health, our in-home speech therapists provide individualized care plans tailored to each patient’s unique situation which create the best outcomes and improved quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Female speech therapist and patient working on speech therapy

What is a speech-language pathologist (SLP)?

A speech-language pathologist, also known as a speech therapist, is an expert in the evaluation and treatment of speech, language, and swallowing disorders. They are trained to diagnose speech-related difficulties and help people reach their speech goals.

What is a speech-language evaluation?

A speech-language evaluation is a comprehensive assessment performed by a speech-language pathologist in order to determine if speech or language disorders are present. The purpose of an evaluation is to identify potential areas of difficulty, specific speech and/or language goals, and recommend the most appropriate speech therapy for individuals with communication needs.

What to expect during a speech-language evaluation?

During the speech-language evaluation, the speech-language pathologist will conduct various tests to measure hearing abilities, speech production and clarity, as well as language comprehension and expression skills. Furthermore, contextual information such as medical history will be reviewed in order to determine which areas need improvement, provide baseline data points on speech production levels, and formulate treatment goals moving forward. Ultimately, this information gathered during the speech-language evaluation helps identify the right speech therapy program that meets the patient’s individual needs and communication goals.
