Tulsa's premier medical speech pathology clinic for swallowing, voice, speech/language, & cognition. Printable SLP therapy materials at tulsasnr.com.
Swallowing and Neurological Rehabilitation is a regional swallowing and voice center in midtown Tulsa, serving patients throughout northeastern Oklahoma and surrounding states. We offer fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) swallow studies and videostroboscopy voice assessments in our state-of-the-art endoscopy suite. After much demand and wanting to make our services accessible to everyone, we also now offer mobile swallow studies for patients in skilled nursing facilities or those receiving skilled home health. At our midtown Tulsa clinic, our highly trained speech-language pathologists assess and treat swallowing impairments, voice disorders, speech/language deficits, and cognitive deficits caused by a variety of underlying diagnoses or conditions. We are in-network with Medicare, Medicaid/Soonercare, Community Care (St. John and St. Francis networks), and most all other private insurances (Blue Cross, United, etc.). SNR is owned by a board certified specialist in swallowing and swallowing disorders, one of only 4 adult-focused swallowing specialists in Oklahoma (and most of the others are in academic/university settings versus clinical). SNR's goal is to provide the highest quality of services possible by ensuring our team stays current in the latest evidence-based practices. Helping other speech-language pathologists worldwide, especially those new to the field or with limited resources, is also a cause that is near and dear to us. SNR has published several downloadable and printable materials that have been downloaded by thousands of SLPs worldwide for use in their own clinical practice. All of our ebooks are available in our Speech Store at www.tulsasnr.com.

If you have any specific cognitive-linguistic materials you'd like to see included in this resource, message me. I aim to please! 😉🤗
Great time tonight at the St. John Street Party cancer fundraiser! ☺️
Take the #ApahsiaAwarenessChallange with us this month and remain silent for 1 hour to recognize those with aphasia who are unable to communicate their wants and needs effectively. ☺️
Ever wondered how it would feel to have aphasia? Check out this aphasia simulator and share to help us raise awareness this month! Aphasia is a language impairment that affects language formulation and/or comprehension due to damage of the language processing centers in the brain. It does NOT affect intelligence. How did you do on the simulation test? Comment and let us know what you think!
We absolutely love Tiffany Turner, MS, CCC-SLP Owner/ Speech Pathologist of Swallowing and Neurological Rehabilitation's excitement about the benefits of the VitalStim Plus unit! Who else is excited? Thanks for sharing Swallowing and Neurological Rehabilitation, LLC! #dysphagia #dysphagiaawareness #VitalStim #CIAOseminars
Share this photo by the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders to help raise awareness of dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, which affects over 15 million Americans! It's also a perfect profile pic size! 😉😊
Help us raise awareness of dysphagia this month and the swallowing treatment options that are available! :) Stay tuned for lots of fun facts on dysphagia and aphasia this month (two very different conditions with similar names that both have awareness months in June!).
Early summer is a big time for speech pathologists, as this is when most of our awareness months fall. June is both Aphasia Awareness Month AND Dysphagia Awareness Month! We'll be sharing facts and info about both throughout the month, starting with a few facts about aphasia below. -Aphasia is a communication disorder caused by a stroke or brain injury that affects the ability to use and process language. It does not affect intelligence. -8-10 hours a week of treatment has been shown to improve progress compared to those not receiving treatment. -The best improvements are often made within the first 6 months after the stroke or brain injury, but steady improvements can continue to be made throughout life. -An estimated 20-40% of strokes result in aphasia. Help us spread awareness of aphasia this month, and please tag us in your awareness posts so we see them too! #AphasiaAwarenessMonth
June is Dysphagia Awareness Month! Help us raise awareness this month by sharing our swallowing-related posts, beginning with this one about Dr. Heimlich! :) ... Also, please keep sharing our Thickened Liquid Challenge which we launched in May and hope to continue going strong with this month throughout the remainder of our dysphagia awareness campaign! Link to the Thickened Liquid Challenge is in the comments below. Thank you to all of you who have shared and submitted videos!
Let's talk about VitalStim Plus swallowing treatment! As many of you know, I've been a VitalStim certified clinician for 3 years now and have seen some amazing results. VitalStim is a form of neuromuscular electrical stimulation used along with exercises to re-train the swallowing muscles. I have had patients go from eating nothing by mouth back to a regular diet in some cases, and it's always such an exciting and rewarding journey to be a part of. I am now SO SO SO excited to announce that SNR is one of the first handful of facilities nationwide to receive the brand new VitalStim Plus device, which has many new features that I am so excited to try with my patients! VitalStim Plus offers sEMG biofeedback, which current research shows yields improved results. The new device also has two extra channels so multiple placements can be targeted simultaneously (e.g., the pharyngeal muscles and the facial muscles if needed). It is also able to be used with a wider range of patients due to its much more customizable features. If you or a loved one has difficulty swallowing, please feel free to reach out to us to find out more information about whether you may be a VitalStim candidate. Swallowing is our specialty at SNR, and being privately owned, patient needs are always our number one priority. We are proud to offer one hour sessions (which is recommended for VitalStim treatment and several other specialty programs we offer), whereas many larger organizations only offer 30-45 min sessions due to daily patient quotas and productivity demands (as well as the fact that insurance reimburses us the same amount regardless of length of a session). My goal when founding SNR was to fill a need in the Tulsa community for specialized adult rehab services that are patient-centered, and I am so happy to be able to do this and to continue to grow and expand the services we offer. We are in-network with Medicare and most all local private insurances. Please call us for more information about VitalStim Plus, any of our other specialty treatment programs, or if we can answer any questions or be of assistance to you in any way. We're here to help! Please share this throughout June (which is Dysphagia Awareness Month) and help us spread the word of this new modality that is now available to northeastern Oklahoma!

Tulsa Area Folks: We're excited to announce that we're beginning a free support group for people with primary progressive aphasia (PPA). We have a current patient who is very interested in meeting others with this diagnosis, so we're reaching out to a few former patients as well as all of you to try to get together a good support system for them. The free group will be held monthly, likely in various locations (e.g., restaurants, etc.) to encourage casual conversation, Q and A, etc. with each other (and with us SLPs). Thanks Stacy for this great idea to support our patients with PPA, and thank you Facebook world for helping us get a good group together for these folks! :) If you know of anyone interested, please have them call us to be added to the list! 918-928-4700.

Happy swallowing awareness day! Did you know people swallow 900 times per day and that swallowing uses 26 muscles? ... Difficulty swallowing is referred to as dysphagia. There are many treatment options for dysphagia including swallowing exercises with or without neuromuscular electrical stimulation, compensatory postures and techniques, and diet texture modification. A certified speech language pathologist who specializes in dysphagia offers all of these treatments and can develop an individualized treatment plan for you or your loved one. Feel free to ask me any questions, and I'm happy to help!
