What is Speech Pathology?
In general, Speech pathology is the study, diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders. This may include supporting adults and children with difficulties in the areas of speech, language, fluency and/or voice. A Speech Pathologist may also support children and adults who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely.
Speech and language disorders in children can lead to difficulties in learning and development, reading and spelling, social challenges and low self-esteem. Speech Pathology for children aims to maximize their ability to engage and interact with others (adults and peers) for a range of functions (e.g., greeting, requesting, responding, commenting), as well as increase participation in activities that are typical for their age.
