Speech-language pathology includes services for patients with cognitive-linguistic disabilities such as attention/concentration, memory, problem solving, thought organization, reasoning and high-level thinking skills called executive functions (the ability to plan, organize information and monitor performance over time).
The cognitive therapists at North Kansas City Hospital are trained to identify these disorders, develop customized treatment plans and work with you to improve your cognitive functions.
