WHAT IS A SPEECH THERAPIST?
Speech-language pathologists (SLP), or speech therapists, are the only health care professionals specifically educated and prepared to evaluate and treat children and adults with speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing problems. They address decreases in swallowing, cognitive, and/or communicative function followingbrain injury,stroke, and brain tumors, or coinciding with progressive conditions such Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. SLPs help people develop effective speaking and listening skills, improve loudness or quality of voice,
preserve the pleasures associated with eating, or re-train cognitive skills, such as memory and word- finding. The speech therapists serve our community within multiple settings, including acute care at SJMC, subacute and long-term care at The Living Center, outpatient through Teton Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, and SJMC Home Health and Hospice.
