Injury or illness that impacts your speech can be frustrating—it can limit your ability to communicate comfortably, but also point to issues with swallowing or even other medical conditions.
The role of the speech-language pathologist (SLP) includes assessment and treatment of all aspects of communication, as well as determining how communication might be impacted by deficits in memory, attention, reasoning, and organization skills. The SLP is also responsible for assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders, known as dysphagia. Patient and family training/counseling are also provided.
