Statistically, who is Impacted by a Communication Disorder?

It’s important to note that statistics can vary, and the prevalence of communication disorders may change over time. Additionally, the impact of communication disorders can extend beyond the individual, affecting their families, educational and work environments, and overall quality of life.

What is a Speech Language Pathologist?

A Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), also known as a speech therapist, is a healthcare professional who specializes in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of speech, language, voice, fluency, and swallowing disorders. These professionals work with individuals of all ages, from infants to the elderly, who may experience difficulties in communication or swallowing.

Diagnosis

Analyzing assessment findings to make a diagnosis and develop a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s specific communication or swallowing needs.

Treatment Planning

Creating personalized treatment plans based on the individual’s diagnosis and specific communication goals. Treatment plans may include a variety of therapeutic techniques and exercises.

Therapeutic Intervention

Providing direct therapy to individuals with speech, language, voice, or fluency disorders. This may involve working on speech sound production, language development, voice quality, fluency, or social communication skills.
