Speech Therapy


Speech Language Pathology is an intensely personal experience. When someone is hurting or their body isn’t working the way it should, Their main goal is returning to their normal way of life. That’s why we focus on people as individuals. We only succeed when they resume a healthy, active lifestyle, and that’s our goal for each patient and getting there comes down to one-on-one care. Our patients typically work with a care team from start to finish. We take time to really understand your needs and goals to develop effective treatment plans. We work to remote obstacles that stand between each patient and success by listening – really listening – when patients have concerns and problems.

Big Stone Therapies offers speech language pathology services at RC Hospital & Clinics to help people of all ages restore, improve, or maintain communication, cognitive, and swallowing disorders. Following a physician’s order, our speech language pathologists evaluate the patient and customize a plan of care that may include a variety of treatments specific to the patient’s needs.
