Speech and language therapists (SLT) are trained specifically to deliver clinical assistance services to adults with a wide range of disorders, like hearing impairment, motor speech disorders (dysarthria, dyspraxia), acquired language disorders (dysphasia), voice problems (dysphonia), and swallowing problems like oropharyngeal dysphagia ). These are often connected to an acquired neurological disorder, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson’s disease and dementia, although other acute conditions may affect these functions, especially when linked to respiratory dysfunction requiring tracheostomy and ventilation. The role of SLT within critical care has increased as patients with complex impairments are sedated less and experience communication and swallowing impairments. These functions are commonly observed as a sign of normality during the recovery process and are a good measure of quality of life of the person.
Stroke most often is responsible for paralyzing any one side of the body or both sides, that may persist for a temporary time period or sometimes permanently. Once an individual suffers a stroke, his or her memory, balance, cognition, speech and vision can be affected. Also, the patient has high chances of experiencing deep pain and muscle spasms as post complications after suffering a stroke. Of all the post stroke complications, the one major complication is difficulty in speech and communication. As per the various medical researches, it has been revealed that up to 40% of the stroke survivors suffer from aphasia i.e. loss of speech.
