Speech Therapy

Helping Patients of All Ages With Expert Speech-Language Pathology Services

McKenzie Health System’s speech-language therapy services assist those in the Sanilac County area who have difficulty with communicating, eating, and cognitive impairments for patients of all ages. Whether the problems are the result of a developmental delay in childhood or an elderly adult with difficulty swallowing after an illness such as a stroke, we can help. We also help patients across the lifespan with difficulty communicating, which in turn enhances their quality of life.

Our highly knowledgeable speech therapists, also called speech-language pathologists (SLPs), can help patients:

  • Improve oral-motor skills
  • Become a verbal communicator
  • Become an intelligible speaker
  • Process and comprehend spoken language
  • Put words together to formulate their thoughts with age-appropriate grammatical skills
  • Be able to understand directions and language beyond their memorized routines
  • Desensitize children and adults to their difficulties and instill confidence, trust, and self-esteem
