The Division of Communication Disorders at Coney Island Hospital has developed programs to identify, evaluate and provide therapy to people (infants, children, adolescents, adults and adult geriatrics) with a wide variety of communication disorders and dysphagia (an oral food management and swallowing disorder). We strive to maximize all aspects of human communication, hearing, and eating and provide ongoing patient family education/home programs to maximize function, understanding, adjustment and carryover.
