Ringgold County Hospital speech therapists facilitate improved communication, swallowing and cognitive skills. They provide a wide range of services, mainly on an individual basis, but also as support for individuals and their families. Speech therapists work to prevent, assess, diagnose and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Speech services begin with initial screening for communication and swallowing disorders and continue with assessment and diagnosis, consultation for the provision of advice regarding management, intervention and treatment, and provision counseling and other follow-up services for these disorders.
