Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) assess, diagnose and treat disorders of speech language, swallowing and fluency, as well as diagnose and treat cognitive-communication and social communication disorders in children and adults.  SLPs can also work with patients who are deaf or hard of hearing to provide aural rehabilitation, provide augmentative and alternative (AAC) devices for patients with severe receptive and expressive language disorders and provide support to families who have loved ones with speech/language disorders. – Adapted from asha.org

Your child may benefit from a ST referral if they:

    • Have limited or delayed vocabulary (delayed speech development)
    • Have difficulty being understood (unintelligible speech or difficulty producing some sounds)
    • Have difficulty understanding directions
    • Have a feeding delay
    • Have difficulty with social language skills
