Cognition Disorders

Did You Know? Speech Therapy Can Help Cognition Disorders

Cognitive disorders in adults can be extremely difficult to understand and cope with. One of the ways that cognitive disorders show up in adults are through physical, social, and learning disabilities. It is vital as a parent to understand what cognitive skills are and learn how to pick up on the signs of cognitive skill deficiencies.

At Therapy Care in Batavia our pediatric speech therapists are experts in diagnosing and treating adults with cognitive disabilities. There’s no reason you have to shoulder this weight all on your own — contact our office today to learn more about treatment options for you.

The speech therapy my little one has received, has really helped improve his speech. When he started speech therapy when he was a little over two years old, he was significantly behind in his speech development. He is now a few months shy of turning 3. He is now using two word phrases and some three word phrases. Additionally, his vocabulary has greatly increased. His speech therapist Amanda works wonderfully with our little one and has also really helped work with me on ways to increase his receptive and expressive language. I am so glad I have him in speech therapy!

Amanda Kramer is the best speech therapist!  She has helped me with my speech sounds to speak more clearly, work on figurative language, and writing narratives.  I really appreciate all the help she has given me over the years.  I started working with her when I was in high school, and I still go see here after I started in college.  Thank you!
