Speech and Language Therapy at CORE Health Care does not limit itself only to the mechanics of communication. Because CORE speech therapists understand the devastating impact that societal isolation can have on an individual, they make every effort to help residents reach out to each other, their families and future support systems. While it is undeniable that verbal communication is the typical manner in which people connect, it is not the only way. Even individuals with severe communication impairments can and must learn ways in which to create and sustain relationships. CORE therapists understand this and are committed to facilitating this important process.
