Our goal is to help you to effectively develop both your vocal ability and the confidence to communicate with the world around you.
At Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC, our Island Heights, NJ medical speech pathologists provide the personalized language skills, tools, and therapies you need to improve your speaking skills, build your confidence, and effectively communicate your needs, thoughts, and unique perspectives.

Custom Speech Treatment For All Ages
Speech pathology is a very customized field. Not only are there many different reasons why a person may need speech assistance, there are just as many techniques and methods for improving vocal abilities.
At Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC, we focus on the individual and their unique language needs, abilities, and comfort level. We begin with assessments and evaluations of your existing skills to better understand where you are experiencing limitations with your communication skills. We may find that a single issue is contributing to your disorder or may find that there are several different limitations that will need to be addressed. Once we have determined an accurate diagnosis, we work to develop a customized therapy plan that is designed for your unique condition, age, and capabilities.
As experienced medical speech therapists, we are flexible and able to adjust therapy techniques as needed to better suit and support your abilities and progress. Not everyone responds the same way to the same treatment, so we are dedicated to customizing each session to provide the best possible language support to our patients. If you need language assistance and want to work with a professional and compassionate Island Heights medical speech pathologist that is dedicated to your personal growth and care, then Neurorehab & Speech Healers, LLC is the right choice.
Who Benefits From Medical Speech Pathology?
It’s not always evident that someone may benefit from speech therapy. For both children and adults alike, there may be indicators of language and cognitive difficulties before any medical diagnosis has been made. Speech and communication limitations may be progressive and slowly develop and degrade over time, or can be sudden, such as resulting from an injury or accident.
Speech disorders may be linked to other medical conditions or disorders, such as ADHD, Autism, Cleft Palate, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson’s, Down’s Syndrome, Dimensia, Alzheimer’s, Stroke, Cerebral Palsy, MS, Aphasia, Apraxia, Dysarthria, and Dysphagia. Responding quickly to changes in communication abilities can even accelerate the diagnosis of core conditions, allowing you to get treatment and have a better opportunity to mitigate the other impacts of the disease or disorder.
If you find that you or a loved one is struggling with any of the following, seek the assistance of a skilled speech therapist for support.
- Trouble controlling the volume, tone, or pitch of your voice
- Trouble selecting appropriate words
- Commonly mislabeling everyday objects
- Forgetting names of friends or family
- Slurred speech, stuttering, or inability to form the sounds of words
- Struggling to recall current events or your personal history
- Challenges with comprehension
- Having trouble following directions and with orientation
- Struggling with problem-solving, time, or money
- Responses in conversations that are delayed or inappropriate
- It’s difficult to chew or swallow during meals
- Struggling with coughing, spilling, and gurgling when trying to eat or drink
Medical speech pathology improves both language skills and communication confidence. If you, your child, or a parent is experiencing issues with language selection, comprehension, or formation, then our Island Heights medical speech pathologists can provide effective treatment and support.
3 Convenient Speech Therapy Options
As your dedicated Island Heights medical speech pathologists, we strive to make speech therapy accessible to everyone, regardless of age, mobility levels, or other medical conditions. We make every effort to remove all barriers between you and getting the speech therapy that you need and deserve. We provide different options for your treatment, from office visits held in our clinic to speech teletherapy.
Our speech therapy treatment options include:
- Outpatient speech therapy
- In-Home speech therapy
- Virtual speech therapy
- Combined therapy
While we enjoy the convenience of working in our own office, we understand that this is not always the best solution for every speech patient. There may be times when your health or schedule doesn’t make in-office visits a viable choice. We can come to you with our in-home speech therapy, or we can provide teletherapy via a digital device. You may switch to a different treatment method as you desire. We want to make it easy for you to get the medical speech treatment you need, and will take every measure to be as accessible as possible for you.
