Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are professionals who provide a wide range of services, mainly on an individual basis but also as support for individuals’ families. The distinguishing role of the SLP is to identify, assess, treat, and prevent speech, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders.
Treatment will vary depending on the nature and severity of the problem, the age of the individual, and the individual’s awareness of the problem. Speech services begin with initial screening for communication and/or swallowing disorders and continue with assessment and diagnosis, consultation regarding management, intervention and treatment, and completed with follow-up services for these disorders as deemed appropriate.
