In brief: Likely yes.

Most likely, the first appointment would be to see how you speak to start with.
A recording might be made of your voice and there might be a video tape of your facial movements. There would likely be other devices to test you as well. Then whatever techniques that are at their disposal would be used to improve your speech. The best way to find out would be to go to one for evaluation if needed.
