Many individuals experience changes in their ability to communicate, think, reason and remember after a stroke or neurological event. If you notice a change in these abilities, you may be experiencing a cognitive deficit. It is treatable with speech/language therapy. At Botsford Hospital, we offer intensive outpatient therapy, with highly-skilled speech pathologists for this condition.
Once you have participated in therapy, you should be able to perform better in daily activities with the learned practical tips that compensate for weakened cognitive skills.
