A Speech Pathologist can diagnose and treat communication disorders including difficulties with speech, language, swallowing and fluency. A Speech Pathologist may assist to develop skills in the following areas: social communication skills, early interaction and pre language skills, understanding language, using language, using Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), speech sound production, meal time skills and fluency.
Different skills are required at different stages of the person’s life. A Speech Pathologist will do an initial assessment with the person and their family (if appropriate) to assess current skills and will design a program based on the person’s individual needs.
