Speech Pathology

What is Speech Pathology?

Speech pathologist are trained to assess and treat people who have a communication disability. Speech pathologists also work with people who have difficulties swallowing food and drink. Communication is the process of being able to understand and to be understood. It is something most of us take for granted. Communication disabilities are the result of problems with producing speech, using and/or understanding spoken words, voice production, fluency or hearing.

One in seven Australians has some form of communication disability. This means that one in seven people has a problem understanding other people or being understood by people.
