Speech Therapy

The goal of speech therapy is to help patients learn or regain the ability to communicate and/or swallow. You may require speech therapy during your hospital stay if your condition effects your ability to communicate or swallow. Additionally, your primary care physician, pediatrician or specialist may also refer you for outpatient speech therapy to assess and treat language, communication, speech and swallowing disorders. Speech therapy also is very effective for individuals with autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, injury to the face/neck, deafness and/or a variety of congenital disorders.

The Outer Banks Hospital offers speech therapy for children and adults on both an inpatient and outpatient basis with licensed therapists who use specialized therapeutic techniques.
