Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are professionals who help restore or develop communication in people of all ages. They assist people who have experienced strokes to regain their ability to speak. They help children who have dysfluency, struggle with speech sounds, or who have difficulty with language. SLPs provide swallowing therapy to help patients eat safely, and teach families the strategies they need to help toddlers communicate.
While the career path of a speech-language pathologist can be diverse, the use of knowledge and research to assist people with communication and swallowing is at the heart of the profession.
