Speech Therapist (ST), sometimes also called Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) work to assess, diagnose, treat, and prevent various disorders related to speech, language, voice, social communication, and swallowing problems in adults/children. Many of these disorders can follow due to an illness, surgery, stroke, or injury. SLPs also work on oral motor skills that are fundamental for proper speech and feeding. Once they complete their assessment, they set up customized treatment plans to ensure the established goals are met.
