What is an SLP?

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) are communication experts!

We can also be referred to as Speech Pathologist or Speech Therapist. We work with people of all ages who have a broad range of physical and cognitive disorders. Some of those disorders include speech, language, voice, fluency, feeding, and swallowing disorders.

SLPs also work in a variety of settings that include hospitals, schools, private practices, rehabilitation facilities, physician's offices, and colleges and universities.

The entry level degree to be a certified-licensed SLP is a master's degree. We do not work as tutors, aides, or speech teachers.

Reach out to Dr. Kimmerly if you have more questions about language and literacy. Her teaching, speaking and consulting services can be found here.
