What is speech-language pathology, and who are speech-language pathologists?

Speech language pathology is a branch of science concerned with a variety of communication and digestive disorders affecting individuals of all ages.

"Communication is the key to human development," as we all know, and Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) are certified professionals who screen, identify, evaluate, and provide individualised intervention services for adults and children with speech, language, communication, and digestive disorders.

SLPs collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of professionals including Neurologist, ENT, Paediatrician, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Teachers, and Psychologists.
SLPs help people become 'Effective Communicators' by assisting them in understanding words and sentences, producing meaningful utterances, and improving their speech clarity, accent, fluency, tone, and rhythm of speech.

Role of an SLP/ SLPs Scope of practice:

SLPs play a crucial role in identifying children's communication difficulties. Children with developmental delays, unclear speech or incorrect pronunciation, stuttering, hearing loss, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and swallowing disorders in children with Cerebral Palsy or other neurodevelopmental disorders are some of the conditions for which we provide assessment and intervention services.

An SLP plays an important role in the assessment and intervention of individuals. Adults who have had a stroke or suffered a head trauma have difficulty speaking and swallowing. SLPs can successfully identify these deficiencies and give appropriate therapy to overcome the communication gap. Patients suffering from neurodegenerative illnesses such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, or dementia face a variety of communication and swallowing challenges. SLPs assist these persons in communicating verbally or give other ways of communication so that the individual can successfully articulate their thoughts.

Identifying and treating adults with specific voice disorders, whether they are performers, teachers, or professional voice users, is a second area of specialised knowledge. We frequently encounter individuals who have stuttering, unclear speech, and who wish to improve their accent in order to speak more fluently.
