Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) help people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, develop or regain the ability to speak, read, write and think clearly, and swallow properly. Clients may be children who have Autism, adults who have experienced strokes or brain injuries, children and adults who stutter, people who struggle with production of speech sounds, or those who have language delays or disorders. SLPs also provide extensive patient and family education. Common work environments include hospitals, rehabilitation centers, clinics, schools and daycare settings.
