Communication skills include listening, speaking, reading and writing. In a speech-language evaluation, we look at each of the areas separately, as well as the whole communication picture, including cognition. The goal is to identify the person’s strengths and areas that need training or retraining.
LANGUAGE addresses the individual’s skills in understanding messages others are sending (receptive language) and organizing and expressing messages, so they are understood by others (expressive language).
DYSPHAGIA, also known as a Swallowing Disorder, results from an injury or medical condition. It is typically treated in a medical setting or at an individual’s home.
“Inspiring others, cheering them on, and watching them progress in developing their communication skills has always been my passion. I’ve practiced with many age groups, in many different locations, but always shooting for the best possible outcomes.”
