Helping with speech, language, voice and swallowing disorders in San Diego

Scripps Health offers speech therapy for adults and children who have speech, language, voice or swallowing disorders.


Our expert speech-language pathologists are available throughout San Diego — in outpatient clinics, home care settings and hospitals, as well as in our state-of-the-art Scripps Center for Voice and Swallowing in La Jolla.

Speech therapy services

The speech-language pathologists at Scripps work closely with other specialists, such as neurologists, oncologists, pediatricians, and ear, nose and throat specialists, to thoroughly evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with speech disorders.

Voice therapy services

Our specially trained voice therapists in San Diego treat people with voice disorders caused by Parkinson’s disease and other medical conditions. Using vocal and physical exercises combined with behavioral changes, Scripps speech-language pathologists can help to assess and restore vocal sound, intensity and performance.

Swallowing therapy services

If you have trouble swallowing food or beverages — a condition called dysphagia — Scripps Health has a team of rehabilitation experts with the specialized training needed to treat your swallowing problem and potentially improve your quality of life.


Scripps Health provides specialized care at several locations in San Diego for children and adults who have difficulty swallowing. We understand how an impairment of this basic function can pose considerable health risks, including malnutrition, dehydration and aspiration pneumonia.
