Identifying and Treating Speech and Language
Disorders in Adults
Identifying and treating speech and language disorders in adults can be tricky, and the
Center for Hearing & Speech can help you the way they helped Adija identify her
Adija began treatment in the form of language therapy at the Center about five months
ago, and is ecstatic with the results of her treatment. Adija struggles with using words
and understanding others which is called aphasia. There are different types of aphasia
and some forms are a direct result of a stroke or some other brain trauma.
Adija’s aphasia is not related to any type of stroke or brain trauma, but prior to seeking
treatment she always felt like something was wrong. She knew she had a significant
speech problem, but she didn’t know what to do about it.
Do you suspect that you, a friend or a family member might have a speechlanguage
disorder? You can ask yourself these questions to identify if you might need treatment:
1) Do you have trouble remembering things people tell you at work?
2) Do you have trouble following a conversation?
3) Do you need to have information repeated to you?
4) Do you have trouble understanding what you read?
5) Do you have trouble thinking of words you want to say?
6) Do you have trouble putting together sentences that make sense?

7) Do you say words that don’t make sense but you are unaware that others do not
8) Do you leave words out of sentences?
Adija has been working with Gina Cato, the Chief SpeechLanguage Pathologist at the
Center, for just five months and has been working on remembering key points in
conversations. When she began treatment, Gina noted Adija could only remember one
key point in a conversation, but has built up to remembering four key points. Gina has
been working with Adija to repeat aloud key points back to customers where she works
to confirm what they have said, as well as asking more questions when she is not sure
she has heard something correctly.
When asked about her language therapy sessions Adija says, “I feel better about asking
people questions or to repeat information when I don’t understand something. I feel I
have better listening skills now, but I would still like to work on speaking better.”
Coming in to the Center for an evaluation is the first step. “The evaluation [at the Center]
helped narrow down the problem to smaller areas I can focus on," said Adija. "It helped
define the problem.”
There is a free clinic day coming up on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015. Go to
http://www.hearingspeechstlouis.org/FreeClinicDay.php for more information. Take
advantage of this free clinic day.
The Center for Hearing & Speech is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that in 2013
provided $1.75 million in speech/language and audiology services to residents of
metropolitan St. Louis.
It is a proud member of the United Way and in October was awarded the Better Business
Bureau’s (BBB) 2014 TORCH award.
The award is given to businesses and charities that “demonstrate a commitment to
customer service through exceptional standards for ethical business practices,”
according to the BBB.
