RESTOReSpeech Therapy at CMC

Speech Therapy services are available at CMC as well as home health.  

In a medical setting the RESTORe Speech-language pathologists (SLP) assess, diagnose, treat and help to prevent oral motor, swallowing, cognitive-linguistic, speech and language disorders.

These professionals work with individuals whose oral motor, swallowing, cognitive-linguistic, speech, or language skills have been impacted by a neurological event or disease, head and/or neck cancer, or possibly a debilitation related to an underlying medical disease process. 

The patient’s condition can result from a variety of neurological events, including brain injury, stroke, seizure, progressive disease, cancer, and/or debilitation related to other medical diseases. The SLP uses physical examination, instrumental technology, and standardized cognitive-linguistic and language tests to diagnose and guide treatment.

SLP develops an individualized plan of care, specific to each patient’s needs. That may include the following:

  • Alternate nutrition based upon aspiration risk when swallowing
  • Diet level modification to reduce aspiration risk when swallowing
  • Design an individualized augmentative communication system or prescribe a speech generating device for individuals with nonfunctional speech
  • Provide education to patients, their family members and caregivers regarding impairments, disease processes, and compensatory strategies
  • Develop daily home programs unique to each individual’s strengths and weakness that facilitate maintenance of swallowing, cognitive-linguistic, speech, or language skills at an optimal level.
