Cognitive-Communication Therapy

Goshen Speech and Hearing Center specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cognitive-communication disorders. Our goal is to accurately diagnose patients and provide or recommend treatment so that patients may resume normal activities and have a more fulfilling quality of life. Cognitive disorders affect any area of communication that relates to cognition. Cognition includes the aspects of attention, perception, memory, sequencing, organization, problem solving, and executive functioning. Cognitive disorders can be congenital or acquired. Congenital causes include genetic disorders and neurological diseases. Acquired causes include stroke, head trauma, neurological disease (including dementia), brain tumor, and traumatic brain injury. People with cognitive impairments may experience functional limitations in behavioral self-regulation, social interaction, academic and vocational performance, and daily living activities. These limitations can significantly impact a person’s overall quality of life. The speech-language pathologist can assess, identify, and manage cognitive disorders. Intervention might focus on teaching cognitive processes, training functional living skills, developing compensatory strategies, providing training to caregivers and families, and counseling patients. The speech pathologist may also collaborate with other professionals, such as a neurologists and otolaryngologists, when developing and executing intervention plans. Goshen Speech and Hearing Center provides therapeutic techniques to diagnose and treat the cause of your symptoms. We provide professional speech-language therapy and audiology services to the Orange County, NY and Greater Hudson Valley community as well as the surrounding areas of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
