The underlying philosophy at the College of Saint Rose is based upon a person-centered approach to care. We collaborate with the individual on setting goals, identifying barriers and facilitators to success, and improving their ability to communicate and interact.

This program serves individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury, stroke, or another neurologic event that has interfered with their communication, cognition and/or behavior.

What makes our program unique is that we pair each person with a CSD graduate student clinician who provides meaningful individualized speech therapy addressing goals identified by the client. The primary focus is to allow the person to resume living a life that is important to them while recovering from their neurologic injury.

As a result of this philosophy, we believe we are impacting a person’s quality of life, their physical and mental health, as well as reducing the rate of burnout for the family as they try to adjust to this new life.
