Speech-Language Pathology

Speech-Language Pathology or Speech Therapy has a primary focus on providing assistance to patients who suffer from speech, language, cognition, and swallowing problems. Speech Therapy may be needed for patients who have suffered from a stroke, facial paralysis, brain injury, as well as progressive neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s.  Our highly trained Speech Pathologists work with patients at Weslaco Rehab Hospital by assessing and diagnosing speech-ralated disorders and providing a treatment plan that is tailored to each patient’s needs to obtain optimal results.  Our Speech Therapy Department also works in collaboration with our Food and Nutrition Department as well as our nursing staff to establish dietary modifications for patient’s who have difficulty swallowing.
