Speech-language pathology sounds like a deep and heavy subject. Something that is almost taboo, a suggestion that a patient or their child needs this sort of medical intervention sounds like a lot. In reality, it’s more common than we think. The practice of speech therapy, as it’s called, actually helps you develop skills like comprehension, fluency, voice, clarity, and the production of sounds. This also helps correct childhood speech disorders and impairments that could be caused by stroke, brain injury, or any other conditions that inhibit the use of your faculties. Speech therapy helps improve your speech and language skills, as well as voice and sound production, clarity, and expression. This pathology is performed by a speech therapist or speech-language pathologist. This person assesses, diagnoses and treats speech disorders and communication issues as well as delayed speech. Your general practitioner, or other medical professionals, may advise you to seek the services of a speech therapist for a variety of these or other reasons, like a hearing impairment or difficulty swallowing. A few other issues that are helped by a speech-language pathologist are aphasia, apraxia, articulation disorders, cognitive-communication disorders, dysarthria, expressive disorders, fluency disorders, receptive disorders, and resonance disorders. Treatment is varied across the board, dependent on the type of speech disorder the patient has and the plan the therapist implements to treat the individual.
