The month of May allows us to pause and recognize our speech therapists for Better Hearing and Speech Month (BHSM). Better Hearing and Speech Month raises awareness for those with communication barriers and disorders. With the help and support of Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs), commonly referred to as Speech Therapists, they can focus on the communication and swallowing efforts of an individual, to better improve their quality of life.
Our MGA Speech Therapists support patients by:
- Using augmentative communication (AAC) devices
- Enhance feeding and swallowing
- Enhance all forms of communication
- Improve language and articulation within the comfort of the patient’s home
We are so proud and grateful for our MGA Speech Therapists who are truly passionate about what they do and the recommendations they have when it comes to finding the right SLP for your loved one.
