After any kind of damage to the brain, individuals commonly experience changes to their speech, language, cognition, voice, and/or swallowing abilities, the technical terms being: dysarthria, aphasia, cognitive-communicative disorders, dysphonia, and dysphagia. Examples of how each of these disorders may present itself are below:
– Dysarthria: weakness or numbness of the face, lips, or tongue; slurred speech
– Aphasia: difficulty “getting the words out,” understanding what others say, or thinking of the words you want to say
– Cognitive-Communicative Disorders: difficulty staying focused on a task, remembering details or events, monitoring emotions, or impulsively acting before thinking
– Dysphonia: abnormally soft, monotonous, or hoarse voice; others may frequently ask you to speak up or unintentionally ignore you
– Dysphagia: frequently getting choked up, coughing, or clearing your throat when eating or drinking; unintentional weight loss
Good news is speech therapy addresses all these changes!
Additionally, we are the only LSVT LOUD provider within 25 miles of Waxahachie. LSVT LOUD is an intensive, four-week program for individuals with Parkinson’s disease, helping them recalibrate their voices so they are better heard and understood.
