Speech and Language Therapy

At Silver Linings, we provide speech therapy and evaluations for people who are at risk or show signs of a speech or language disorder.

In our clinic, we strive to provide the most up-to-date therapy techniques for children and adults.

What do we treat?

  • Speech sound disorders (difficulty producing sounds)
  • Language disorders (difficulty following directions or putting words into sentences)
  • Voice disorders (related to voice quality, rate, or loudness)
  • Fluency disorders (stuttering and cluttering)
  • Feeding and Swallowing disorders (children and adults)
  • Social language disorders (social skills training)
  • Phonological awareness (skills that underly reading skills; ex. sound identification)
  • Deficits related to traumatic brain injury and/or stroke
  • Cognitive skills (recall of information and sequencing of everyday tasks)

What does an evaluation look like?

The therapist will choose an evaluation tool depending on the concerns of the patient and the patient’s family. This could be…

  • a swallowing evaluation with water and different food consistencies
  • a cognitive screener that evaluates memory, language, and executive functioning skills
  • a stuttering evaluation with picture descriptions or conversation samples
  • a language evaluation with naming tasks, following directions tasks, and reading and writing assessments
  • a social language checklist to determine areas that are affecting quality of life

If you have not previously been exposed to common speech disorders, then you may have difficulty determining if you or someone you love is at risk. Please see the following links for more detailed information on the various types of disorders that we offer treatment for in our clinic.
