Our Speech Therapists
Speech therapy is provided one-on-one on Fridays at Oceanside Stroke Recovery for those members who are experiencing aphasia and other speech difficulties as a result from their stroke. Our speech therapists meet with members in a quiet room where each therapist provides a specialized program tailored for each member.
