What is Speech Pathology? Speech Language Pathologists (or Speech Therapists) assess, diagnose, and treat individuals with communication delays and disorders. This may include individuals who have difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. Some Speech Pathologists also specialise in swallowing disorders.
