The Speech Therapy department at Kirby Medical Center offers the expertise and personal services of a licensed speech pathologist who works with both adults and children. We provide speech therapy services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Kirby Medical Center meets unique speech therapy needs in our community in a cost effective manner. Our speech therapy department is committed to evaluation, assessment, education, and motivational strategies in the therapeutic process to guide each patient toward success.
Speech therapy is more than correcting the typical lisp. Communication-based speech therapy programs help children and adults produce speech that is understandable. That development can help express their needs and interact appropriately with others as they develop in the speech therapy sessions.
Swallow-based programs assist patients with swallowing disorders and diet consistency modification.
