About Flower City Speech Connections:

Our passion for beginning Flower City Speech Connections (FCSC) stemmed from our clinical experiences in hospital and skilled nursing settings. While we truly appreciate and love both medical settings, we always dreamed of starting our practice that would assist individuals in finding speech therapy services that were both readily accessible and practical in addressing concerns in various areas. We understand that finding a skilled service can be daunting, stressful, and exceptionally costly; therefore, our mission is to provide flexible,  person-centered, and evidence-based treatment to all of our clients in hopes to ease those stresses. At Flower City Speech Connections, we will collaborate as a team to implement strategies to assist you in getting back to your life!

How Therapy Works:

As you begin therapy with FCSC, we will utilize qualitative and quantitative measures to assess your area(s) of concern. With the utilization of these measures, we will be able to adequately determine a plan of care or treatment plan. In addition to utilizing the qualitative and quantitative measures, we always encourage each patient and family to determine their own goals as well. This allows therapy to be functional and person-centered to achieve maximum results and carryover of new strategies. We hope that each of our clients feels as though their therapy sessions are personalized and geared towards what they want and need.

In addition to utilizing qualitative and quantitative measures, we also identify each of our client’s ability to function within the community. It is no surprise that when individuals experience strokes, traumatic brain injury, or are dealing with a neurodegenerative disease; participating in events, or going to the grocery store can cause stress and/or anxiety.  It is our goal to support community integration, and provide each of our clients with the tools to effectively participate and engage in community activities.
