Our speech pathologists work with a variety of people who may have communication difficulties as a result of stroke, brain injury, learning disability, intellectual disability, dementia and hearing loss.

One of Alwyndor’s therapy programs is the Talkback Group, which provides a safe environment for conversation practice for those who have experienced speaking difficulties as a result of stroke.

Speech pathologists also work with individuals who experience problems with swallowing food and drinking safely. They develop therapy plans to maintain nutrition and hydration that is tailored to an individual's needs.
