Speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat adults with communication disorders, such as speech, language, voice and cognitive difficulties, and swallowing disorders. Each patient is evaluated by a speech-language pathologist.
Following a thorough and comprehensive evaluation, the speech-language pathologist determines appropriate therapeutic interventions, and work with patients to help regain the ability to express and understand wants and needs at simple and complex levels.
Speech-language pathologists help restore speech clarity and improve cognitive functioning, problem solving and memory as well as assisting patients with swallowing disorders to safely drink and eat.
