In today’s society, it is very important to be understood and understand others. It is an essential skill in order to fit in and develop ourselves professionally and socially. People who have communication difficulties may experience isolation from friends, family, and colleagues and often from education and employment settings as well. Communication difficulties may affect all age groups, from infants to the elderly.
Speech-language pathologists work in partnership with other qualified practitioners. They have the knowledge and expertise to identify and treat children and adults. Speech-language pathologists can address issues with communication, swallowing and reading and writing delays. They are able to assess and manage individuals requiring alternative and augmentative communication systems.
