Frequently Asked Questions - Speech Therapy
Speech therapy is a type of physical therapy for improving a wide range of oral issues, from vocalization problems to swallowing difficulties. In this form of therapy, more than 158,000 healthcare specialists throughout the U.S. are currently helping hundreds of thousands of adults and children overcome speech issues and other challenges to improve their quality of communication and oral functioning.
Whether you have been struggling with speech difficulties from an early age or developed recently, working with a speech pathologist can transform your communications abilities.
Speech therapy at NeurogeniCSS helps adults accomplish a vast array of goals. For example, a person who has suffered damage to the vocal cords due to cancer or has stuttered since childhood can make remarkable improvements. The brain is retrained through therapy and develops strategies that strengthen an individual’s abilities for clear communication.
With proper speech conditioning, patients can rebuild essential vocalization skills that have been severely compromised by injury, disease, or other medical conditions. For example:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Cancer impacting the vocal cords
- Hearing loss
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
- Huntington’s disease
The initial session of adult speech therapy sets the direction and lays the groundwork on which the future sessions will build progress toward your precise goals for your program. Your session will be for verbal assessments to establish a baseline of your skills and needs.
As your speech therapy swings into full pace, you'll move through a structured program designed for your specific communication needs. The activities may change or have new processes incorporated as your program progresses.
You'll learn strategies for achieving clear communication and/or cognition, as needed, and you’ll have abundant opportunities to practice your newly acquired methods. Your therapist may show you new physical exercises to manage your muscle movements or strengthen weaker abilities that have hindered your speech and help you practice those.
Generally speaking, yes, speech therapy is covered by major health insurance carriers. The treatment inclusions and extent of coverage for those, of course, depends on your insurer and your policy. See the list of healthcare insurance networks in which NeurogeniCSS is an in-network provider.
If your insurance company is not included in the list of those for which NeurogeniCSS is an in-network provider, you can probably still receive therapy at NeurogeniCCS. We will be happy to help you and your insurance provider confirm your coverage to receive speech therapy at NeurogeniCSS as an out-of-network service.
