Banner Health speech therapists, also known as speech pathologists, can help patients who face a variety of speech, voice, and language disorders.
Our licensed professionals can help patients who are having difficulties because of hearing loss, stroke, cerebral palsy, mental disability, or brain injury.
Banner Health speech therapists work with physicians, social workers, and psychologists.
Most importantly, our therapists help individuals and families understand speech disorders and on how to cope with the stress associated with these problems. Therapists also work with families on treatment techniques to use at home and on how to modify behavior that impedes communication.
We use special techniques to help patients improve their verbal and non-verbal communication skills; problem-solving abilities, concentration, memory and voice quality. Certified speech therapists/pathologists also can help patients improve their ability to safely eat and drink.
