Why Speech Therapy?

Speech and language help people communicate clearly and concisely. Speech plays a vital role in a person’s independence. At HealthNow our certified speech therapists work with patients to regain speech functions so they can return to their daily lives and communicate effectively. Patients who have difficulties with speech and language can benefit from speech therapy.

We are experts in helping our clients manage their speech-related problems. If you experience problems with your accent, slurred speech, acute stuttering, difficulties making skilled movements that are necessary for speech, aphasia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, vocal cord problems, brain injury, or Alzheimer’s disease, our speech therapists can tailor a plan that targets your challenges.
