Speech Therapy

Lake Area Physical Therapy & Aquatics offers comprehensive speech therapy in Melrose, Keystone Heights, Starke and Crescent City, Florida. Our licensed speech-language pathologist is available by consultation to provide evaluation and treatment for aphasia, language disorders, swallowing disorders, cognitive disabilities, and speech disorders. Speech therapy is most commonly recommended as part of the rehabilitation process for adults with the following health conditions:

  • Stroke
  • Head Injury
  • Dementia
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Head and Neck Cancer

We also work with children who have conditions such as:

  • Apraxia
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Dysphagia (Feeding and Swallowing Disorders)
  • Language and Speech Delay Disorders
  • Stuttering
  • Cleft Lip and Palate Conditions

Available in all three Lake Area Physical Therapy & Aquatics locations, speech therapy or swallowing therapy is usually done in the privacy of a treatment room and may also be offered in conjunction with physical therapy and/or occupational therapy.

Speech evaluation can include exercises to assess the speech or swallowing difficulty or disorder, followed by a recommendation for a therapy plan that will work best for your individual situation.

Along with this intensive speech therapy, our speech pathologist will provide a home program to enhance the skills learned in speech or swallowing therapy treatment.
