The speech therapy clinic of Centro Medico Santagostino provides voice and speech therapies for adults and children. To access the speech therapy clinic, patients must first undergo an evaluation with a psychiatrist, psychologist or neuropsychologist.
The treatment of articulation disorders that create pronunciation problems (dislalia) and disorders that affect the voice (dysphonia), common among vocal professionals and child "screamers", is aimed at restoring a correct vocal profile, working on aspects such as breathing, projection, resonance and the correction of incorrect vocal habits.
Language production difficulties stemming from congenital disorders such as cleft lip and cleft palate are treated after surgery, and rehabilitation is aimed at improving both nutrition and language, with specific exercises that restore function and promote better voice quality and an increased intelligibility of speech.
The speech therapist, in collaboration with other specialists, also provides treatment for language delays and disturbances in preschool-aged children, as well as treatment for swallowing disturbances.
