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.
