Speech Language Pathology is concerned with receptive and expressive language skills, verbal and non-verbal communication skills and behaviors, oral-motor development, cognitive development, feeding skills, and social and play skills.

The Speech Language Pathologist assesses abilities to include oral motor function and structure for feeding and swallowing and implements a plan of treatment with specific strategies and outcomes to address these areas.  Appropriate augmentative communication devices are suggested and utilized for improved functional communication with family and peers.  Recommendations and referrals for auditory intervention are addressed as needed.

Family training is provided and continued involvement with other disciplines and professionals using a transdisciplinary model is emphasized.
