Services & Programs Toggle
At Perry County Memorial Hospital, our speech-language pathologists (sometimes informally referred to as speech therapists) are highly-trained to work with all age groups in the areas of speech, language, and swallowing in a variety of settings including: acute care, swing-bed program (i.e., rehab, to home), and outpatient care.
Children, age birth to 3 years, who demonstrate difficulties with communication or swallowing can receive speech language services through Perry County Memorial Hospital. If you have concerns about your child’s speech or language, consult a speech-language pathologist.
Preschool and school-age children, who exhibit difficulties with speech and/or language, can also be helped at Perry County Memorial Hospital, because our speech-language pathologists have experience working with children.
Adults, who have experienced a neurological disturbance such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, or a disease affecting the nervous system, are also among those treated at Perry County Memorial Hospital for speech-language disturbances and/or swallowing disorders.
Listed below are some of the most common speech, language and swallowing disorders for both children and adults. If you feel that you or a family-member may benefit from our speech-language therapy services, discuss the possibility with your physician. If you have questions about our department, feel free to contact us at (812) 547-7011.
