The Dearborn County Hospital Speech Therapy Department provides comprehensive care for people of all ages, including pediatrics. The Speech Therapy Department is committed to helping people with communication, cognitive and swallowing disorders through individualized evaluation and treatment. DCH speech therapists are licensed and certified and are devoted to providing the highest level of care. Speech therapy is provided in all settings including inpatient, outpatient, and home health/hospice. Conditions requiring speech therapy may have existed from birth or resulted from a developmental delay, illness, disease or an accident.
Pediatric Speech Therapy
Do you have concerns regarding your child's communication skills? Take a moment to review the Speech-Language Screening Quiz to see if your child might require further evaluation.
We offer a child friendly and family focused environment with play-based therapy sessions. Our goal is to provide individualized treatment to help each child gain as much functional communication and intelligible speech as possible. Conditions requiring speech therapy may be a result of apraxia, autism, down syndrome, stuttering or a speech and language delay.
Adult Speech Therapy
Adults services are provided to inpatients, outpatients and through home health services. Comprehensive assessments and treatment plans are designed to improve deficits and overall quality of life. These deficits may be related to various speech, language, cognitive, voice and swallowing disorders that may result from a stroke, brain injury, Parkinson's Disease or Alzheimer disease. Throughout the process, patients and family members are educated to use new strategies and techniques to compensate for communication or swallowing disorders.
