Speech-Language Pathologist Career
Speech-language pathologists work with people who have difficulty producing speech. Their patients may include children with developmental delays and adults who have suffered from strokes or other forms of brain damage. Speech-language pathologists are responsible for creating treatment plans for their patients and working with them one-on-one over an extended period of time to ensure that adequate progress is being made.
As a speech-language pathologist, you will most likely choose to focus on either a specific type of patient or a specific type of speech difficulty. For example, some pathologists choose to focus on patients who have suffered strokes, while others choose to work with either children or the elderly.
