SLP FAQs

What is a Speech Language Pathologist?

Speech language pathologists, also called SLPs, are therapists that evaluate, diagnose, and treat an array of speech, language, and cognitive communication issues, including swallowing disorders that can occur in both adults and children. As experts in communication, SLPs work with all types of patients, from adult stroke victims to children with developmental delays in a variety of health care, education, and research settings.

According to the Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, there’s a shortage of speech language pathologists, especially in schools, due to the aging population, growing rate of autism which often presents speech disorders, and limited openings in graduate programs.

Most speech language pathologists work in health care or educational settings with a majority working at schools. They also work in hospitals, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation centers and long-term residential health care facilities. Some may work in a private practice or work in the government sector.
