The Rush Approach to Speech Therapy Services

Connecting with others is a vital and fulfilling part of life — and we make sure you aren't missing out. Rush's speech-language pathologists, often called speech therapists, help people of all ages manage problems related to speech, language, cognitive communication and swallowing.

You may need speech therapy for disorders that originate in childhood or impairments caused by an injury or illness, such as stroke or brain injury.

At Rush, our world-class speech therapists will evaluate you and provide you with a care plan that includes access to the latest technology for improving various disorders.

Rush Excellence in Speech Therapy Services

  • Groundbreaking technology: Rush Copley Medical Center is one of few locations in the Fox Valley area to offer state-of-the-art VitalStim Therapy — a painless, non-invasive therapy for treating dysphagia. The therapy applies external electrical stimulation to the front of the neck to stimulate the muscles responsible for swallowing.
  • Recovering after a stroke or brain injury: If you have developed aphasia, apraxia or dysarthria, we can work with you to develop the best ways for you to communicate while improving your expression and comprehension. If you have Parkinson’s disease, we can help you increase the volume of your speech.
  • Improving cognition: Our speech therapists will work with you and your family to improve your problem-solving, memory, reasoning and thinking skills, and develop assistive devices to suit your individual needs following a stroke or brain injury.
  • Combating stuttering: Rush specialists have improved patients' lives with Speech Easy, a technology worn in one ear that has helped thousands increase their ability to communicate effectively and confidently, and overcome their stutter.
