speech & language therapy

A speech language pathologist (SLP)  evaluates and treats children and adults who have difficulty with speech and language disorders. An SLP is able to work with a variety of different disorders and conditions including but not limited to: developmental delay, neurogenic disorders, fluency

(eg, stuttering and cluttering), and speech sound production (eg, articulation, apraxia, dysarthria).  It is important for an SLP to work closely with other health care professionals, as well as with parents and caregivers, to provide training and education.
