What is a speech-language pathologist (SLP)?

A speech-language pathologist (in schools, often referred to a speech-language specialist or speech therapist) assesses, diagnoses, and treats people who are experiencing difficulties with speech, language, or swallowing. Speech-language pathologists can work in a wide range of settings (school, hospital, clinic, etc.) and with people of all ages demonstrating various communication difficulties. In the school setting, SLPs work with students whose speech and/or language disorders are not only affecting their ability to communicate, but also their academic success and social interactions.
