What Is SLP (Speech Language Pathology)?
Speech language pathology is a field of expertise practiced by a clinician known as a speech language pathologist (SLP), also called speech and language therapist, or speech therapist. The speech language pathologist will assess, diagnose, treat, and help clients overcome barriers to communication, speech, language and swallowing/eating/feeding. Our speech language pathologist is a specialist in caring for children and adolescents, and will assess your child in relation to typical development and skills for children their age. The speech language pathologist incorporates the principles of evidence-based practice in clinical decision making to provide high quality clinical care. The speech language pathologist is an essential team member of the multidisciplinary team. The speech language pathologist collaborates with audiologists, physicians, dentists, occupational therapists, dietitians, educators, behavior consultants, and parents based on the individual client’s needs.
Our 3 Step Approach
All children are unique and require a well thought out, individualized speech therapy plan. When a family chooses Speech Pathology at Pediatric Plastic Surgery Institute, they will enter into a partnership with an experienced, well-trained speech language pathologist.
The first step in this approach includes formal and informal evaluation and parent interview.
Following the evaluation the speech pathologist will provide parents with the results and recommendations.
The goal of therapy is to address any challenges or areas of weakness that were established during the evaluation.
