PROMOTING COGNITION & COMMUNICATION TO MAXIMIZE ENGAGEMENT IN LIFE

At SLP Neuro Care, we treats the following conditions: NEUROGENIC COMMUNICATION DISORDERS Neurogenic Communication Disorders are communication disorders as a result of damage or impairment to the Nervous System or the Brain. We treat these disorders including: 1) Aphasia: a language disorder that results from brain injury or stroke and affects the ability to speak, understand, read, or write. 2) Dysarthria: a motor speech disorder that affects the muscles used for speech, resulting in slurred or slow speech. 3) Apraxia: a motor planning disorder that affects the ability to coordinate the movements needed for speech. 4) Cognitive-Communication: involves language and thought; it is the ability to process, store, and recall information, as well as to think critically and analyze situations. Cognitive-Communication Disorders involve impairment in one or more of these processes: Memory, Attention, Problem Solving & Executive Functions.
