Speech and Language Pathology

Te Reo Kōreo Kia Tika



Speech and Language Pathology studies human communication, how it develops, and the many differences and difficulties that children and adults experience.

Speech-language therapists/pathologists work with premature infants, children in preschools and schools who have difficulty communicating and learning, and adults who have lost their ability to communicate eg, through stroke, brain injury, or degenerative disease.

Studying Speech and Language Pathology will give you the skills to help improve and treat communication disorders.
