Speech Therapy Activities

Speech therapy activities are used to assist patients and help them regain their former lives back.

Many patients have to relearn to speak and our speech therapists work with them 5 days a week to address their problems. The main focus is to help the patients deal with issues pertaining to self awareness, self monitoring, planning, reasoning, problem-solving and execution of daily tasks.

Cognitive Communication Activities

With an emphasis on the patients’ recovery, our experienced speech therapists work hard each day. Cognitive communication activities have been specially designed to help patients improve their memory function and attention span.

Restore the Clarity of Speech

To facilitate speech fluency, our speech therapists work one-on-one with our patients to help them overcome speech problems. Patients dealing with problems related to stuttering, vocalization and pronunciation are given special attention.

Over time, the patients’ speech develops, and their voice also heals. A detailed speech therapy treatment plan and effective speech therapy exercises are used to achieve the desired results.

Safe Swallowing

Due to oral damage, some patients aren’t able to swallow properly. These swallowing disorders are worked on by strengthening the oral muscles. Regular speech therapy exercises eventually leads to better swallowing skills. This way, the risk of choking on food or inhaling it accidently is reduced.
