Speech-Language pathologists are part of the Rehabilitation
team. If your child is hospitalized for a head trauma or
neurological injury, your physician may consult a speech-language
pathologist (SLP) to evaluate your child. The SLP will perform a speech evaluation and
may determine that your child needs speech therapy. Individual
therapy sessions may be continued while your child is an inpatient
at Children's Mercy. When your child is discharged, further
recommendations will be discussed by the entire team.
The Kreamer Family Resource Center at CMH can help families with web-based resources about
pediatric head trauma or neurological injuries.
