What does a Speech-Language Pathologist do?

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent speech, language, communication and swallowing disorders. Our goal is to empower clients to gain the skills that they need to thrive at school, at home, and in every facet of life. Treatment plans are tailored to meet the needs of both the client and caregiver or family, in collaboration with the multidisciplinary team as appropriate.

Hearing and speech are closely related. For this reason,it is recommended that a hearing screening be completed within the last year prior to being seen for an Speech Language Pathology evaluation. This screening can be completed at the doctor’s office, at a school or by an audiologist. If you have questions about the hearing screening process, please contact our office for additional information.
