Each patient is given an individual training plan. This plan includes exercises to train and improve relevant movement patterns. These include for example:

Neuropsychology

In the case of disorders, the aim of neuropsychology is to restore memory and develop mental flexibility, which is essential for planning tasks in daily life.

During treatment, the speed of information processing in the brain is trained with the help of various activities. These include games (card games, memory, Power 4, ...), computer programs (Igerip and Cogniplus), and exercises on paper.

The aim of speech therapy sessions is to restore the ability to express oneself verbally and in writing and to correct swallowing disorders.

The following treatment methods are used:

  • Rhythmic melodies
  • Repetition of syllables
  • Cloze texts
  • Laryngeal exercises

Our speech therapists create communication or memory books to help our patients interact better with the world around them.
