The Elliot Health System’s Rehabilitation Department is proud to offer Speech Therapy services delivered by licensed and credentialed Speech Language Pathologists (SLP’s). These professionals address speech, language and communication disorders across the lifespan. In our acute inpatient care setting of the main hospital, our SLP’s work with inpatients who may have experienced challenges with communication or oral motor function as a result of a physical illness or injury. These specialists provide evaluative assessment and treatment for difficulty with speaking, swallowing, interpreting communication and work to restore or maximize these functions. They also provide specialty services within our Neonatal intensive Care Unit (NICU) for babies with oral motor and feeding challenges. Speech Therapy is also offered in the ambulatory outpatient setting at our 1070 Holt Avenue, Manchester location. Our SLP’s in this setting provide evaluation and treatment for both pediatric and adult populations.
