motor skills, cognition, and speech to help patients establish more independent,
productive, and satisfying lives.

basic motor functions and/or reasoning abilities to compensate for permanent
loss of function. Our occupational therapists may assist patients with
basic activities of daily living, such as eating or dressing.
Speech-language pathologists assist adults and children with diagnosed
speech and language disorders as a result of a developmental issue or
medical illness. Our therapist helps patients by improving their speaking
ability and comprehension, reading, writing, cognition, memory, and swallowing.
