Speech- Language Pathology
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP), diagnose, treat and help to prevent disorders related to speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing and fluency. Our Speech-Language Pathologists have a certificate of clinical competence from the American Speech Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
Speech-Language Pathologists work with people who have difficulty articulating speech sounds; those with speech rhythm and fluency problems, such as stuttering; people with voice disorders, such as inappropriate pitch or harsh voice; those with problems understanding and expressing language such as aphasia; and those with cognitive-communication impairments, such as attention, memory and problem solving disorders. They also work with individuals who experience swallowing difficulties.
Adults may experience communication and/or swallowing difficulties for a variety of reasons, including Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Dementia, and Head/Neck Cancer. Our Speech-Language Pathologists perform Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies, in conjunction with the Radiologist, and in accordance with ASHA’s best practice guidelines for the identification and treatment of swallowing disorders (Dysphagia).
