  • Words and pictures can work together to communicate more powerfully than either alone.

Speech and Language therapy is conducted by a Speech Language Pathologist. A Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) is also known as a Speech Language Therapist, Speech Pathologist or Speech Therapist.

SLPs work with infants, children, adolescents and adults who experience a developmental (from birth) or an acquired communication difficulty. These difficulties may be related to their language, speech, voice, fluency, swallowing, feeding or cognition. SLPs are equipped with the qualifications and skills to assess any communication difficulty to determine a targeted treatment plan that best suits each client.
