We also provide services for a variety of other speech, language, and cognitive communicative disorders in adults. Please contact us if you or someone you know is experiencing one of the following conditions:

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) - disorder caused by an injury to the brain due to which, people may have trouble communicating and completing daily living functions. The brain injury can affect cognitive skills, such as attention, memory and executive functions that include organization, planning, sequencing, reasoning and judgment, which can affect social and communication skills.

Dementia and Primary Progressive Aphasia - conditions caused by pathological changes in the brain that affect language, memory and other cognitive functions. There are different types of dementia, with the most common being Alzheimer’s disease, where memory is the first to be affected. Primary progressive aphasia is a condition where the language skills are gradually lost first. Language problems may mimic the characteristics of aphasia.

Right CVA - disorder caused by a stroke in the right half of the brain in which, people may have difficulty paying attention to the left side of the body and visual space; communicating effectively; expressing and understanding emotions and  implied meanings; reading and writing; and may not be aware of their difficulties.

Dysarthria - a speech disorder in which, speech sounds are slurred or unclear, due to difficulty controlling the muscles of the face and tongue.  This can result from a number of conditions affecting the brain, such as Strokes, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Ataxia, Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis, etc.

Apraxia - speech disorder due to which, people have difficulty saying what they would like to say clearly and correctly all the time.
