Speech and Language Pathology

Speech and Hearing Information Night

Speech pathologists help children and adults with speech and language disorders to communicate successfully with their family and friends at school or university and in the workplace. Speech pathologists may help children whose language is not developing in the normal timeframe, or they may treat adults who have acquired a communication impairment through disease, injury or a stroke. They also help people who have difficulty with eating and swallowing.
