Occupational therapy helps you redevelop or learn skills for independent living. When dealing with a chronic illness, stroke, severe injury or other issue, these types of daily living skills can suffer. Our occupational therapists work with you to:
- Develop or relearn self-care skills.
- Address dysfunction of the upper extremities.
- Understand how to use (and practice using) functional aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, canes or other devices.
- Understand how equipment may need to be modified to best meet your needs.
Speech and language therapy
Speech and language therapy usually begins with an evaluation to determine whether your speech and communication capability has been impacted by injury or illness. Speech-language pathologists then work with you to regain words and communication skills or improve symptoms of any communication disorder you may have.
