Speech Therapy

A speech-language pathologist, sometimes called a speech therapist, evaluates, diagnoses and treats individuals with disorders of speech, language, cognitive communication, voice and swallowing. A speech pathologist works with individuals who have difficulty with speech production or who have difficulty with speech rhythm and fluency disorders. People who have difficulty understanding and producing language or cognitive-communication deficits, such as attention, memory or problem solving, may also work with a speech pathologist. Additionally, speech pathologists work with individuals who have difficulty swallowing.
