Do you or someone you know need the help of a speech pathologist? Many people find that they do need the services of a speech pathologist after they suffer from a stroke. Our dedicated and compassionate speech-language pathologist on the Upper East Side is Maia C. King.
Maia King works with many patients to help them recover from speech and language problems resulting from a stroke. If you would like to contact her regarding retaining her services for yourself or for a loved one, simply contact our office of Maia C. King, MS CCC-SLP. At our practice we know it can be very difficult for patients to come in for our speech and language services. For this reason we always like to extend the option of visiting our clients at their home, at a nursery school, a day care center, at your office or even in a park that you enjoy. The good thing about speech therapy is that it can be done anywhere at any time. We even offer tele-health services via Skype or Face Time. Our speech-language pathologist on the Upper East Side also runs a special speech therapy group for patients who are suffering from aphasia, apraxia, and dysarthria after a stroke or brain injury.
Patients will get aphasia as a results of damage to the areas of the brain that are responsible for language. A patient who has aphasia problems can have problems with speaking, listening, reading, and writing. However, a patient suffering from this condition has not had any loss of intelligence. Most of the problem relates to anomia – which is the patient’s inability to be able to think of the proper name for an object. There are also many other communication disorders which might have developed as a result of a stroke. Our speech-language pathologist on the Upper East Side is very experienced in working with individuals who suffer from these types of stroke -related problems. Ms. King is both an advocate and educator for patients who suffer from these conditions. In fact Miss King has lectured at the National Stroke Consortium. She also conducts workshops to help train health professionals, including physical therapist and occupational therapist, to learn how to be most effective in working with brain-injured adults and children. Maia King is able to help both patients and caregivers learn strategies for effectively dealing with these very frustrating problems.
