Speech Therapy

Speech therapy
 
In the Rehabilitation Center «Armonia», the department of Speech therapy deals with patients suffering from speech disorders (aphasia and inarticulacy), voice disorders (dysphonia) and swallowing disorders (dysphagia). We prepare an individual therapeutic program for each patient according to his particularities and characteristics of his condition.
 
In addition, we organize group therapies with patients that have already improved and are more functional, in order to boost communication and social interaction. This aids their smooth socialization and reintegration in everyday life.
 
For the patients suffering from dysphagia and need a further investigation of their swallowing system, we conduct a Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) always in cooperation with an ENT doctor. 
 
Once a week, the speech therapist takes part in the meeting of the interdisciplinary team where the needs of each patient are evaluated, the therapeutic plan is prepared and the frequency and duration of the therapy sessions is arranged.
