Aphasia Programs

Karen White MS CCC-SLP, CBIS, LSVT Certified

Greetings!  I have been a speech and language pathologist for 31 years.  Most of my career has been in the outpatient setting (Genesis Medical Center) where I focus my practice on adults with neurological speech, language, and cognitive deficits – such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, concussion, brain tumor, and other progressive neurological diseases.  I see patients in individual treatment sessions and work in conjunction with our day treatment program (Genesis LIFT program) for those patients whose goals include return to school, work, and volunteer status.  Patients with aphasia, primary progressive aphasia, apraxia of speech, cognitive-linguistic impairment, dysarthria, and dysphagia (swallowing disorder) make up my primary caseload.  I am a long standing member of ASHA , am licensed in the state of Iowa, and have certifications in Brain Injury (CBIS) and Lee Silverman Voice Therapy – Loud.  At Genesis Medical Center, we accept private insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid.  Feel free to contact me at our outpatient location – Genesis Physical Therapy and Wellness.  We are located in Bettendorf, Iowa.

Kennestone Neuro Outpatient Rehabilitation

At Wellstar Speech, Swallowing and Voice Therapy Centers, we believe communication and swallowing problems should not limit a person’s functioning and enjoyment of life. Our highly skilled speech language pathologists provide comprehensive speech, swallowing and voice therapy services so we can meet our patients’ needs today and in the future. We are also pleased to offer complimentary support groups including an aphasia support group and aphasia conversation group, available to individuals with aphasia and their families, caregivers, and friends.

 

Salus University Speech-Language Institute

Offering a customized approach to the assessment and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders using innovative, science-based methods.

 

At the Speech-Language Institute (SLI), speech-language pathologists provide a wide range of pediatric and adult assessment and intervention services, while providing valuable clinical experience to graduate students in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology. Salus University’s highly-trained clinical faculty provide Primary Care while supervising and mentoring speech-language pathology students as they gain important knowledge on evidence-based practice. Speech-language pathology faculty and students work closely with our clients and their families in order to create treatment plans tailored to each client’s strengths, limitations, and anticipated outcomes, in order to rehabilitate or enhance specific skills.  Both individual and group intervention is employed to maximize the benefits of each plan.

Currently, care that is provided by the faculty and students at SLI is complimentary – without fees to the client or his/her insurance.

The Speech-Language Institute is located on the main campus of Salus University in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania.

Tulsa Aphasia Choir

Tulsa Aphasia Choir is an organization geared toward people with aphasia and their caregivers.Singing is beneficial for many people with aphasia, as it taps into undamaged areas of the brain and allows words to be produced more freely than they often are during speech. We will begin rehearsals during the first week of October, 2016, with the goal of performing in early December. Well-known music will be used, and absolutely no musical experience or talent is required! We welcome anyone with aphasia as well as their caregivers to participate. Please contact Sara Bennett by phone, email, or through our Facebook page for more information or to register.
