Speech Therapy

The Shriver Therapy Group has been providing speech language pathology services to the city of Casper and the state of Wyoming since 1997. The services we proved include the diagnosis, prognosis, and remediation of speech, language, and swallowing disorders. Our therapists evaluate and treat children and adults who have difficulty speaking, listening, reading, writing, or swallowing. Our overall objective is to optimize our patients’ ability to communicate and swallow, thereby improving quality of life.

ST-Page-2The Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) at Shriver Therapy Group perform an initial evaluation to determine the needs of your loved one. A plan of treatment is then established to best address those identified needs.

Highly qualified speech language pathology assistants carry out the plan of treatment under the close supervision of an accredited SLP.  Our mission is to involve the family in the carryover of the treatment plan, therefore we inform parents of techniques and provide home plans to promote achievement of functional communication and/or feeding/swallowing skills.
