Video: Patient Success Stories - Sara Pyszka, Wright State University student

Print this page Bookmark and Share

Sara Pyszka is a senior at Wright State University. Because she has cerebral palsy, she is not able to speak. However, she is able to communicate with a computerized device.
Dayton Children's and Wright State University held an event called "Stop the Silence" to raise awareness about communication disorders. Imagine how devastating it would be if you lost the ability to talk due to a stroke or accident and what affect that would have on your life. Some children who receive speech therapy services at Dayton Children's are unable to use their voice to communicate due to congenital problems such as cerebral palsy. Learning to use a computerized device is a very long and complicated process and requires the assistance of a trained speech/language pathologist. Often times, these services are not covered by health insurance.
