Cognitive Communication Therapy
Therapy for cognitive communication focuses on the underlying cognitive processes that can impact a person’s overall communication in terms of their ability to speak, listen and understand, read or write. People who have an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) may require cognitive communication therapy to address challenges with attention, memory, organizational skills, and self-awareness. The more serious the injury, the more likely it is the individual will experience multiple challenges, which can have an impact on their life in a variety of significant ways.
Speech-Language Pathologists are highly skilled individuals who are trained to assess and treat cognitive communication skills.
At S.L. Hunter SpeechWorks, the clinicians are equipped with up-to-date technology and resources to help people who are experiencing cognitive communication challenges. First, they conduct a comprehensive assessment of the client, using formal and/or informal assessment tools to evaluate skills such as listening, comprehension, social communication, insight and awareness. Next, they create a unique treatment plan designed to rebuild, reroute or reorganize affected connections within the brain and to provide appropriate strategies to enable the client to successfully deal with challenges that may arise.
