Our top-notch pathologist, Maia C. King, is specially trained to diagnose and treat speech pathology problems which can include social communication, swallowing, and feeding and voice disorders. Our speech-language pathologist 93rd Street runs a speech therapy aphasia group for people who suffer with aphasia, apraxia, and dysarthria after a stroke or brain injury. When a patient has aphasia, they have a common language disorder that results when part of the brain is damaged; this type of damage often occurs as a result of a stroke. In this disorder, there has generally been damage to the left side of the brain. When a patient is suffering with problems of aphasia they can have problems speaking, listening, reading, or writing. However, it is important to recognize that this problem in no way affects the intelligence of the patient involved, which remains completely intact. Patients with this problem also often have a problem of anomia, which is an inability to correctly name objects. If a patient has damage to the right side of the brain, they can have cognitive-linguistic deficits, which involve problems with attention or concentration, as well as problems with judgment, or reasoning. Patients with aphasia can also often have problems that cause a motor speech disorder. It is also common for patients to have problems with swallowing, which is also known as dysphagia. Our expert speech pathologist is able to work with you or your loved one to help overcome any and all of the speech problems that are affecting the individual.
