Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs)

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. SLPs work in a variety of different settings including research, education, and healthcare frequently as part of a multidisciplinary team that can include teachers, physicians, audiologists, psychologists, social workers, physical and occupational therapists, and rehabilitation counselors. SLPs must complete a Master’s degree in order to practice. Visit the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for additional information.
