What do Speech-Language Pathologists do?
A Speech-language pathologist (SLP), or speech therapist, is an expert in communication. They work with people of all ages, from babies to adults. SLPs assess, diagnose, and develop treatment plans for individuals with communication disorders. The Speech-Language Pathologist team at New Horizons Wellness Services collaborates with our multidisciplinary team to provide comprehensive and individualized treatment.
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 a 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.
