Voice therapies for adults
Speech therapy is a therapy for speech, speech, voice and swallowing disorders.
Speech therapy and language
There are enormous differences in language learning even in childhood. Some learn the language very quickly, others take more time. Problems arise, among other things, in understanding grammar, but also in learning vocabulary. The so-called dyslexia is particularly well known. A reading and spelling weakness in which it is difficult for those affected to translate the spoken language into written language (and vice versa). In general, speech therapy should be considered in cases of speech disorders.
Speech therapy and speaking
A speech disorder or a speech defect describe problems with the articulation of speech sounds. This manifests itself, for example, in lisp and stutter. Damage to the brain may be the cause. For example after a stroke.
Speech Therapy and Voice
Especially people who do speaking jobs (e.g. teachers, educators, office hours assistants, telephone service staff) run the risk of overloading their voice. This means that you have a hard time vocalizingly through a whole working day. Voice therapy is particularly appropriate when there is a voice disorder. This means that the voice has changed continuously. This is expressed for example. in hoarseness, pressed or toneless speaking. In addition, tones can sometimes no longer be held long. Our therapists also offer trans people the appropriate and individual support on their way.
Speech therapy and swallowing disorders
There are often neurological problems with swallowing, such as after a stroke or Parkinson's disease. An operation in the mouth, jaw, throat or larynx area can also cause swallowing problems.
Why do you need speech therapy?
This can have very different backgrounds. For example, we help children improve their language skills. As an adult, you will receive speech therapy if you have had a stroke and speech and / or hearing are affected. The area of the brain that is responsible for language ability may also have been affected. We can also treat other neurological disorders; People with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other diseases can also find help with us.
What happens during the speech therapy class?
First, an initial assessment is carried out. In this first interview, the therapists discuss the problem with the patient. A treatment plan is developed from this. At the same time, you also have to include the environment in the therapy. No matter how good the treatment is, if the environment works against it, goals are achieved much more slowly. The therapy sessions are planned together. The therapy itself takes place in the following hours, which differs depending on the complaint.
How long does the therapy last?
It is very different. Depending on the diagnosis, therapies can last 30, 45 or 60 minutes. The average is 45 minutes. These treatments can then take place once or twice a week. Depending on the degree of severity, the duration of therapy can be a few weeks or several months.
