Evaluation and therapy: Deborah focuses on the evaluation and treatment of speech, voice, velopharyngeal, fluency, cognitive / language, and swallowing disorders in children and adults.
The speech and swallowing disorders may be related to, at least:
Use of the modality of pharyngeal neuromuscular electrical stimulation (VitalStim) as needed
Common Disorders We Treat
VitalStim® Therapy is the first proven treatment for dysphagia. It's the only dysphagia therapy backed by compelling clinical data and cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VitalStim Therapy uses small electrical currents to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing. At the same time, we help patients "re-educate" their muscles through rehabilitation therapy.
