Outpatient Speech Therapy
Speech Language Pathologists, commonly known as Speech Therapists, work with people of all ages, from babies to adults. SLPs treat many types of communication and swallowing problems.

These include problems with:
Speech sounds-how we say sounds and put sounds together into words.
Language-how well we understand what we hear or read and how we use words to tell others what we are thinking.
Literacy-how well we read and write. People with speech and language disorders may also have trouble reading, spelling, and writing.
Social communication-how well we follow rules, like taking turns, how to talk to different people, or how close to stand to someone when talking.
Voice-how our voices sound. We may sound hoarse, lose our voices easily, talk too loudly or through our noses, or be unable to make sounds.
Fluency-also called stuttering, is how well speech flows. Someone who stutters may repeat sounds, like t-t-t-table, use "um" or "uh," or pause a lot when talking. Many young children will go through a time when they stutter, but most outgrow it.
Cognitive-communication-how well our minds work. Problems may involve memory, attention, problem solving, organization, and other thinking skills.
Feeding and swallowing-how well we suck, chew, and swallow food and liquid. A swallowing disorder may lead to poor nutrition, weight loss, and other health problems.
