Speech Language Pathology

0020

For more than 50 years, the Henry Ford Health System team of speech-language pathologists has been providing a wide variety of services to evaluate and treat individuals with speech, voice, language, hearing and swallowing disorders. Our speech-language pathologists specialize in pediatrics, adult neurogenics, in-patient acute care, voice and laryngeal disorders, and feeding/swallowing problems.

From infants to elderly, we assess and treat individuals with communication and swallowing problems due to insufficient development, neurological injuries and environmental factors.

Our pediatric program helps assess and treat child disorders, including:

  • Developmental language delays
  • Auditory processing disorders
  • Speech disorders (e.g., developmental articulation delays, childhood apraxia of speech, dysarthria)
  • Stuttering
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Hearing impairments
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Feeding/swallowing disorders
  • Voice disorders

We also evaluate and treat adult disorders, such as:

  • Language disorders/impairments due to stroke (i.e., aphasia) or brain injury
  • Speech disorders (e.g., dysarthria, apraxia)
  • Accent reduction
  • Stuttering
  • Swallowing disorders (dysphagia)
  • Voice problems due to abuse or misuse (e.g., singing/overuse) or laryngeal pathologies
  • Stridor due to vocal cord dysfunction
  • Voice therapy for transgender individuals
  • Neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., Parkinson's disease)
