Adult Speech and Language Pathology

(click here to go back to Therapy Services main page)

Adults who require Speech-Language Pathology Services will be seen by the Adult Speech-Language Pathologist. 

Speech-Language Pathology is the rehabilitative or corrective treatment of physical and/or cognitive deficits/disorders resulting in difficulty with communication. This program deals with adults who have problems in expressive and receptive communication.

The Speech-Language Pathologists are integral members of the swallowing assessment team as well.

Sun Country Health Region offers Speech-Language Pathology Services for adults with a variety of speech, voice, language, cognitive-linguistic, and/or swallowing disorders.

With the adult population, this may include individuals who have suffered a stroke, head injury, or who have progressive degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Parkinson's Disease. The Speech-Language Pathologist may also work with people who have had head and neck surgery, including a laryngectomy.

Speech-Language Pathology services are provided to adults in acute and long term care facilities throughout Sun Country Health Region, as well as on an outpatient basis.
