Speech and Language Pathology
Speech-language therapists/pathologists are professionals educated in the study of human communication, how it develops, and the many differences and difficulties that children and adults experience.
They work in preschools and schools with children and students who have difficulty communicating and learning. This includes supporting children who stutter, have autism, or have a voice disorder. Or they may also work with infants born prematurely, and provide services for adults who have lost the ability to communicate or swallow effectively due to stroke, degenerative disease, brain injury, or cancer.
