Free swallowing and speech screenings offered

Free speech and swallowing screenings are being offered at South Peninsula Hospital’s Rehabilitation Department throughout the month of May in recognition of Better Hearing and Speech Month.

This 15-minute exercise is perfect for adults, children and their caregivers who have concerns about a potential speech or swallowing concern. Whether looking for reassurance or referral for further investigation about concerns, this brief screening could help identify or resolve problems affecting speech or swallowing.
