The role of the speech-language pathologist is to identify, assess, treat, manage, educate and help to prevent language, speech, voice, fluency, cognitive and other related communication disorders as well as swallowing problems.
These difficulties may be caused by a variety of health related problems. For example, strokes, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, ALS, cleft palate, hearing loss, learning disabilities or delayed development. In some cases, the cause may be unknown.
A referral from a physician is required (can be mailed, faxed to 705-495-8101 or brought in by a person requesting services.)
