Communication is an essential skill and one that develops across a person’s lifespan. The Speech-Language Pathology services at the Loyola Clinical Centers take a step-by-step approach to assess and treat a variety of communication disorders in children and adults.
Working with graduate student practitioners and professional clinicians at the LCC, clients receive assessments, as well as either one-on-one or group therapy sessions—or both—tailored to their individual speech and language needs. With clearly stated and mapped-out objectives, practitioners work with clients to help them reach their goals.
At the LCC, we take a family-centered and client-centered approach to intervention, working with the client and his/her parents, siblings, extended family, and/or spouses. Family members are encouraged to participate in therapy sessions and will have opportunities to observe as well as speak with the clinicians in order to help carryover skills from the LCC to other environments.
People who seek speech-language services typically have these kinds of concerns:
- Delayed speech and/or language development
- Difficulty pronouncing specific sounds or being understood by others
- Phonological disorders
- Concerns regarding fluency
- Difficulty understanding language, both verbally and in written form
- Difficulty using language to communicate
- Pragmatic language disorders
- Foreign Accent reduction
- Voice disorders
- Resonance disorders
- Cognitive communication disorders
- Auditory processing
- Aural Rehabilitation
The LCC does not provide assessment or intervention for swallowing disorders/dysphagia.
