Speech Language Pathology

Copley's Speech Language Pathologists are certified and licensed professionals who diagnose, evaluate and treat a wide range of speech, language, and swallowing disorders.

Disorders treated include:

  • Language Disorders - including difficulty making sense of the environment, comprehending spoken language or communicating thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
  • Swallowing Disorders, also known as dysphagia. This usually occurs as a result of illness, surgery, stroke, or injury.
  • Voice Disorders - when the quality of voice is affected, such as having a hoarse, breathy, or nasal voice, or when speech volume is too high or low.
  • Stuttering, the most commonly recognized speech problem.
  • Articulation Disorders - difficulties making sounds correctly. These problems may begin in childhood or may occur later in life as a result of stroke, injury, or illness.
  • Cognitive Communication Disorders - common in adults after a head injury or stroke. These disorders cause difficulty in thinking clearly, remembering or problem solving.
  • Other Speech/Language Services, including
    • Augmentative and Alternative Communication -    offering new possibilities for people who cannot speak.Technology offers an array of options, including voice synthesizing computers and communication boards.
