A Day in the Life of a Speech Therapist
Speech Therapists are involved in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of communication and swallowing disorders.
Speech Therapists work with patients of all ages and are trained to assess and treat patients who have difficulties communicating, feeding or swallowing due to developmental delays and/or disorders, or other medical conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injuries and dementia. They also work with patients to restore and improve their ability to communicate, feed or swallow and provide a comprehensive treatment management plan addressing these difficulties so as to improve their overall quality of life.
