O’ahu Speech Therapy

Treatment for speech & swallowing disorders

Speech language pathologists provide diagnostic evaluation and therapy services to children and adults who are patients at Adventist Health Castle and to people in the Windward O’ahu community who would like to receive these services through our outpatient clinic.

Some speech and swallowing problems that require treatment include:

  • Articulation disorders: Difficulty forming the sounds necessary to speak clearly
  • Voice disorders: Difficulties with pitch, voice quality (such as hoarseness, nasality and breathiness) or loudness of the voice
  • Laryngectomy: Surgical removal of the vocal cords (voice box), requiring patients to learn how to speak again
  • Tongue thrust: Speech or swallowing difficulties caused by dental abnormalities
  • Stuttering: Interruptions in the flow or rhythm of speech
  • Aphasia and dysarthria: Loss of speech or language abilities after neurological insults such as stroke, head injury and brain tumors
  • Cognitive and communication deficits: Difficulties with memory, attention, information processing, or thought organization as the result of stroke, head injury or brain tumors
  • Delayed language development in children
  • Dysphagia: Swallowing problems due to brain damage, neuromuscular disease, head injury or neck surgery
