Speech Therapy

Speech therapy helps patients improve their ability to communicate effectively and eat safely. Our speech therapists treat patients with a variety of speech, language, cognitive, voice and swallowing deficits that could be a result of a stroke, brain injury, cancer or other neurological illnesses. 

These therapists also have specialized training in diagnostic testing (for example, modified barium swallow studies) for swallowing and voice disorders.

Conditions treated include:

  • Aphasia
  • Apraxia
  • Dysarthria (difficulty articulating words)
  • Stuttering
  • Voice and vocal cord dysfunction
  • Swallowing disorders

Specialty Services:

  • Flexible Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES): an alternative to modified barium swallow studies (MBS) where a flexible endoscope (camera) is passed through a nostril to the back of the throat so a “birds-eye view” of the swallowing mechanism can be seen. This allows a speech therapist to diagnose swallowing problems. Locations: Texas Health Arlington Memorial, Texas Health Fort Worth
  • Videostroboscopy: a small camera is placed at the back of the throat to visualize the vocal cords while making sounds which helps to diagnose weakness, paralysis or disease. Locations: Texas Health Arlington Memorial, Texas Health Fort Worth
