Concussion & Cognition Program 

Our Concussion and Cognition Program will service patients suffering from mild, post-concussive cognitive deficits, which often impact executive functioning and  language skills.

Our team of Speech-Language Pathologists provides an initial evaluation and designs a  treatment plan that is individualized for both pediatric and adult populations. Additionally, we offer highly specialized services to support individuals after injuries have occurred, and preliminary  therapies have been completed.
