Signs of Speech and Language Disorders:

  • Having Difficulty Communicating to Others
  • Struggling with Speaking Clearly
  • Having Problems with Expressing Your Thoughts
  • Hoarse or Raspy Voice
  • Trouble Swallowing
  • Frequent Coughing or Choking During Meals
  • Extra Effort or Time Needed to Chew or Swallow

If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the above signs, talk to your doctor about Speech Therapy. Speech-Language Pathologists can help older adults communicate their needs better, boost their memory and thinking skills, and improve their ability to swallow.
