What is Speech-Language Pathology?

Speech-Language Pathology is the study of disorders that affects a person's speech, language, cognition, voice and swallowing.  Speech Pathologists, also known as Speech Therapists, are healthcare professionals who assess patients and diagnose disorders of human communication and swallowing.  


Speech Pathologists assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent disorders related to speech (articulation, rate, voice), cognition communication (attention, memory, problem solving), language (phonics, syntax), ability to receive and express language (in reading and writing), facial expressions and oral motor or swallowing problems.


Learning Difficulties

Language and literacy skills begin at birth and continue through the preschool years.  Skills important to the development of literacy (reading and writing), are developed during the first few years of life.  Learning to read and write requires phonological awareness.  Children who enter elementary school with weaker verbal abilities are much more likely to experience difficulties learning
