Speech Therapy

It’s easy to take for granted the ability to speak to others, swallow, laugh, have a conversation and easily understand the words that are being spoken to you. However, for some people, these abilities are challenging due to an injury, illness, developmental, or debilitating genetic conditions. At WakeMed Rehabilitation, we recognize that speech therapy is essential to helping individuals with speech, language, cognitive and swallowing disorders reach their full potential. Our multidisciplinary care team includes a dedicated, experienced, licensed speech-language pathologists who offer outpatient speech therapy to those who are struggling.

Conditions We Treat: 

  • Speech disorders, such as:
    • Stuttering
  • Apraxia — Caused by brain damage; a person has trouble correctly saying what he or she intends to say
  • Dysarthria — Caused by a neurological condition; the muscles used for speech are too weak and words come out slurred or slow
  • Problems with swallowing
  • Aphasia
  • Brain injury
  • Stroke
  • Other neurological conditions
  • Cancer of the larynx or other oral cancer
