What I do
A speech therapist (often called speech language-pathologist) helps evaluate, diagnose and treat disorders pertaining to language, speech, voice, feeding, swallowing, fluency, cognition and communication.
Speech therapists play many roles. Many people believe that speech therapists sole purpose is to teach individuals how to speak correctly. We often times counsel clients and their families on how to cope with the stress of diagnosis and provide accurate information that can benefit them.
Speech therapists often work with different populations such as pediatrics and geriatrics. Job settings can include but are not limited to schools, medical facilities, clinics, retirement homes, business offices, clients’ homes and private practices.
Often times, speech therapists serve as part of a “team,” working along side Occupational Therapists (OT), physical therapists (pt), physicians, social workers, psychologists and other professionals.
