At Highline Physical Therapy, we provide solutions for children and adults who are having speech, language, cognitive and swallowing difficulties and help them communicate successfully in their everyday lives. We provide comprehensive evaluations and then tailor a treatment plan to best suit each client’s individual needs. Our observation room is available for family members to be a part of the treatment process.
Providing solutions and helping people communicate successfully
Our comprehensive programs include evaluations and highly customized treatment plans for children experiencing difficulties communicating with others. Our goal is to ensure that our patients are able to communicate with family, peers, and loved ones successfully. We specialize in the following areas:
- Receptive Language (understanding language)
- Expressive Language (communicating thoughts and ideas to others)
- Articulation (speech clarity)
- Early Communication
- Social/Pragmatic Communication
Our adult services include communication, cognitive and swallowing assistance. Our goal is to improve overall functioning and skills to allow independence in the community. We commonly treat:
- Brain Injury
- Neurological disorders (MS, ALS, Parkinson’s)
- Voice disorders
- Dysphagia (swallowing disorders)
- Accent Modification
We also have advanced training in evaluating Swallow Video-Fluoroscopies. Our speech pathologist provides this specialty service at the main campus of CHI Franciscan in conjunction with the radiology department.
We provide free speech and language screenings for children at our Tukwila office by appointment. At the consultation, our speech pathologist will determine if a comprehensive evaluation is indicated.
