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.
  • Speech Fluency issues, such as 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 Include
