Salut Empordà Healthcare offers thorough speech therapy care; a personalised service for anyone with a condition affecting their voice, speech or language abilities that hinder communication. We will use the most effective techniques, methods and resources to guarantee successful treatment, as well as state-of-the-art instruments for accurate and comprehensive assessment.

While the service handles all types of communication disorders, its main focus is on disorders of the voice. Specialists act upon the health and prevention of voice disorders, rehabilitation of vocal function and performance enhancement in healthy voices subject to greater demands. This unit treats alterations of the voice, speech and language in persons of all ages and provides personalised care for those whose profession calls for high-performing vocal skills (teachers, singers, actors, announcers, etc.).
