Speech Therapy

Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language. People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely can also be helped by a speech pathologist.

Speech therapists will assess and create Therapy Plans to assist with a range of difficulties including:

  • Speech — pronouncing the sounds in words
  • Language — speaking and understanding others
  • Voice — using the vocal cords to produce speech
  • Fluency — stuttering and cluttering
  • Literacy — reading and writing
