Shelbyville Speech Therapists

Injuries, disease, and birth conditions can all affect a person’s speech. Being unable to clearly communicate with people can be a major source of frustration and disrupt someone’s entire life. This is why we have a highly trained speech therapist to assist patients with speech and language development, as well as swallowing and voice therapy.

Speech therapists are thoroughly trained in the study of human communication. They understand how these disorders affect the mind and body. Through specific exercise and training techniques, a speech therapist can help patients overcome stuttering, problems with swallowing, difficulties understanding speech, and difficulties expressing oneself clearly.

Common conditions we treat include:

  • Dysphagia
  • Aphasia
  • Dysarthria
  • Articulation
  • Expressive and receptive language delays
  • Voice disorders

People who have suffered neurological injuries such as a stroke often need speech therapy. You will need a physician’s referral to enroll in this program.
