Speech Therapists Empower Patients

The ability to communicate is easy to take for granted. It allows us to talk to our loved ones, perform our jobs, form friendships and live independently. In some cases, however, the ability to communicate is lost or slow to develop. When this happens, it’s time to seek the services of a speech therapist. At Rush Memorial Hospital, our speech therapists are dedicated to empowering patients with communication issues, whether these issues result from illnesses, injury, or developmental delay.

Speech therapy professionals help patients develop the skills and strategies necessary to engage with the world around them. They work with patients recovering from a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • Head Injury
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Physical Disability
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Stuttering
  • Dementia / Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Cancer
  • Voice Disorders
  • Childhood Developmental Delays
  • Sensory Processing Disorders
  • Autism
  • ADHD
