Speech and Language Services

Speech and language disorders can affect anyone, at any age. Millions of people experience communication or swallowing disorders. Whether it is difficulty swallowing, a disorder such as stuttering or problems with voice or memory, these issues affect our ability to learn and interact with others, and they can be helped.

Services include:

  • geriatric rehabilitation
  • neurorehabilitation
  • communication
  • voice
  • cognition (mental rehabilitation)
  • swallow evaluations

If you or a loved one is dealing with these difficulties, the skilled speech-language therapists in CHI Franciscan Health’s Therapy departments can help you understand the nature of your impairment, and help you fulfill your functional potential.

Speech and language services are offered at St. Joseph Outpatient Center in Tacoma, St. Clare Specialty Center in Lakewood, St. Francis Outpatient Center in Federal Way and St. Anthony’s Milgard Medical Pavilion. Directions and contact information can be found on our “How to find us” page.
