Neuromuscular disease can affect a person's speech, voice, swallowing, breath support and overall effectiveness in verbal communication. Specialized clinicians design voice, articulation and swallowing techniques to compensate for motor or sensory loss so that individuals may continue to use vocational and conversational communication skills.
Experienced Speech-Language Pathologists utilize computer technology and electroacoustic diagnostic instruments to measure and assess all aspects of speech, voice, breath support and swallowing functions. Individualized programs of speech drills and exercises are provided for the patient and caregiver.
Augmentative speech computer devices can also be provided. Caregivers and family members are carefully incorporated into this program to assist in treatment and developing communication coping strategies.
Many of the motor speech disorders are found in chronic diseases like Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis. Swallowing disorders are often concurrent with advanced motor speech disorders.
Patients with motor speech disorders often require other rehabilitation services like Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy. Speech-Language Pathologists work closely with neurologists in treating these patients.
Coverage from most major insurance companies is accepted, but coverage for treatment depends on individual insurance benefits.
