Speech-language pathologists, also called SLPs, are experts in communication.
SLPs work with people of all ages, from babies to adults. SLPs treat many types of communication and hearing problems. These include problems with:
Speech sounds—how we say sounds and put sounds together into words. Other words for these problems are Augmentative & Alternative Communication, Articulation & Phonological Disorders, Motor Speech Disorders like Apraxia, Acquired Apraxia of Speech (AOS), or Dysarthria.
Language—how well we understand what we hear or read and how we use words to tell others what we are thinking. In adults this problem may be called Aphasia.
Social communication—how well we follow rules, like taking turns, how to talk to different people, or how close to stand to someone when talking. This is also called pragmatics.
Voice — The sound of your voice is used to make contact with others, convey emotions and create connections. Your voice is a part of your identity. Often, you may be recognized, by the sound of your voice. Everyone needs their voice, particularly those who rely on their voice for their livelihood. This includes teachers, coaches, politicians, actors and singers.
Dsyfluency — also known as stuttering, is a speech disorder in which sounds, syllables, or words are repeated or prolonged, disrupting the normal flow of speech. These speech disruptions may be accompanied by struggling behaviors, such as rapid eye blinks or tremors of the lips. Stuttering may make it difficult to communicate with other people, which often affects a person’s quality of life.
Hearing Loss & Hearing Devices—Having some degree of hearing loss ranging from mild to profound. People who are Hard of Hearing may benefit from the use of hearing aids or other Hearing Devices. They depend primarily upon spoken language in communicating with others.
