> SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY
What is Speech Language Pathology? How do we explain it to kids and families?
Speech Language Pathologists can help children learn communication and feeding and eating skills, as well as assisting understanding and processing language skills.
Some kids don't learn communication skills "naturally." These children need to be taught these skills. A Speech Language Pathologist can support you and your child to work out what is needed.
Information on Speech Language Pathology is listed below.
