Speech Pathology

What is a Speech Pathologist?

Speech Pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with:

  • Speaking
  • Listening
  • Understanding Language
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Social Skills
  • Stuttering
  • Using voice

They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language. People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely can also be helped by a Speech Pathologist.
