Speech Language Pathology

The Speech Language Pathology Department offers diagnostic and therapeutic services to inpatient and outpatient adults and pediatrics with a variety of speech and/or language disorders. As one of several clinical services in the Rehabilitation Medicine Department, our therapists take a multidisciplinary approach towards treatment for those adults who are also receiving physical and/or occupational therapies.

Evaluations and therapy are provided in English and Spanish (Paterson) by our professional staff of speech-language pathologists, each of whom are licensed by the State of New Jersey and hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).

Comprehensive evaluations and therapy are provided for adults with dysarthria (slurred speech), aphasia (a language impairment resulting from neurological problems such as stroke or head injury), cognitive impairment (resulting from traumatic head injury or stroke), voice disorders, and vocal cord dysfunction. Speech-language pathologists are part of the multidisciplinary team on our Primary Stroke Center (Paterson) and the Acute Rehabilitation Unit (Wayne) providing evaluations and treatment to inpatients.

Speech-language pathologists trained in Lee-Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) are available to help strengthen vocal loudness, a problem often found in Parkinson’s disease.
