At Results Rehab P.A., our Speech Therapy team provides services for adults of all ages including the geriatric population. Our team of Licensed Speech Therapists is responsible for the evaluation and treatment of any speech and language disorders including swallowing disorders as a result from illness, aging or disability.

Speech Therapy (ST) focuses on receptive language to understand words spoken to you, and expressive language, the ability to use words to express yourself. In addition Speech Therapy offers treatment to many speech/language disorders.
