Physical Speech Therapy Solutions

SMARTfit Speech Therapy programs put a focus on improving patient motor and cognitive outcomes, both independently and simultaneously. Programming is customizable, scalable and reportable. SMARTfit can aid by helping to integrate audio, visual, speech and motor responses. Patients can perform exercises that may improve cognitive processing to visual and audio cues and practice translating them into action. As a result, programming may efficiently integrate the brain and body. Early and evolving research continues to demonstrate the efficacy of cognitively-enhanced exercise programs. SMARTfit achieves this while delivering customized, scalable and evidence-based programming and reporting.

There are several speech and language disorders that can be treated with SMARTfit speech therapy.

  • Fluency disorders. A fluency disorder affects the flow, speed, and rhythm of speech. Stuttering and cluttering are fluency disorders. A person with stuttering has trouble getting out a sound and may have speech that is blocked or interrupted, or may repeat part of all of a word. A person with cluttering often speaks very fast and merges words together.
  • Receptive disorders. A person with receptive language disorder has trouble understanding and processing what others say. This can cause you to seem uninterested when someone is speaking, have trouble following directions, or have a limited vocabulary. Other language disorders, autismhearing loss, and a head injury can lead to a receptive language disorder.
  • Expressive disorders. Expressive language disorder is difficulty conveying or expressing information. If you have an expressive disorder, you may have trouble forming accurate sentences, such as using incorrect verb tense. It’s associated with developmental impairments, such as Down syndrome and hearing loss. It can also result from head trauma or a medical condition.
  • Cognitive-communication disorders. Difficulty communicating because of an injury to the part of the brain that controls your ability to think is referred to as cognitive-communication disorder. It can result in memory issues, problem solving, and difficulty speaking, or listening. It can be caused by biological problems, such abnormal brain development, certain neurological conditions, a brain injury, or stroke.
  • Aphasia. This is an acquired communication disorder that affects a person’s ability to speak and understand others. It also often affects a person’s ability to read and write. Stroke is the most common cause of aphasia, though other brain disorders can also cause it.
