Why Study Speech-Language Pathology?
Speech-language pathologists help people who are struggling with the most basic and critical of skills: speaking, communicating and swallowing. Speech-language pathologists need to have a strong desire to help people, a strong scientific background, and the warmth, sensitivity and resourcefulness to work with people having difficulty communicating. Speech-language pathologists have daily opportunities to make a real difference in peoples’ lives.
Speech-Language Pathologists often work as part of a team, which may include physical therapists, occupational therapists, teachers, physicians, audiologists, psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation counselors and others. Corporate speech-language pathologists also work with employees to improve communication with their customers, or modify foreign accents of workers to increase their communication potential. Some Speech-Language Pathologists work with actors and singers to enhance their vocal skills.
