Speech, Swallowing, and Voice Disorders

Southampton Hospital (631) 849-6499

Our speech/language pathologists work in partnership with the patient’s physician and other health care professionals to provide comprehensive diagnostic and treatment programs for adults and children who are experiencing speech, swallowing, and cognitive and voice difficulties. These conditions often develop as a result of stroke, Parkinson’s disease, head trauma, and other neuromuscular disorders, as well as head and neck cancer, and developmental delay in children. Voice evaluation and therapy are also available for professionals such as singers, teachers, and actors. State-of-the-art technology is used, including Surface Electromyography (SEMG), Visi-Pitch™, and VitalStim® Therapy to help the person experiencing the effects of a neurological disorder to regain their ability to communicate and/or swallow safely. The young child who is delayed in development can improve speech and language ability.
