Our speech therapy team has some of the most specialized set of practitioners under one roof in the Carolinas.
Lead by a staff with more than 60 years of combined experience, our speech therapy program offers comprehensive speech, swallowing, and feeding therapies.
Our patient-specific, state-of-the art services include:
LSVT LOUD™ Parkinson’s Disease program: therapy that can help patients with vocal loudness, intonation, and voice quality
TEP (Transesophageal prosthesis) measuring, replacement, and management for people post-laryngectomy (removed voice box) who want the freedom to speak without the use of electronic devices
FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing), an advanced way of evaluating a person’s ability to swallow by analyzing the specific structures involved in the process. This procedure provides on-the-spot diagnostic analysis of the complex
swallowing mechanism, allowing therapists to more accurately and successfully prescribe treatment options.
Modified Barium Swallow Studies. Completed in conjunction with radiologists in our imaging department, these studies create recommendations for safe feeding and swallowing when there is a suspicion of swallowing impairment
Neonatal and pediatric feeding assessment and intervention through the use of specialized feeding tools, techniques and training of parents and caregivers

Erin Harrison, MA, CCC-SLP
"Eating is such an essential and basic part of our lives. You can feed the body artificially but that does not feed the heart! Eating is so much more than nutrition- it is pleasure, comfort, social. I love when I can help someone regain the
ability to eat and see their face light up! Helping a person speak again is another great honor. To lose the ability to express yourself...I can't even imagine that. I'm all about getting that person as independent as possible and enjoying
life as much as possible."
