What is Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology?

According to ASHA.org, speech-language pathologists “identify, assess, and treat speech and language problems.¬†Speech disorders occur when a person is unable to produce speech sounds correctly or fluently, or has problems with their voice. Language disorders occur when a person has trouble understanding others (receptive language) or sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings completely¬†(expressive language).”

Audiologists “are healthcare professionals who provide patient-centered care in the prevention, identification, diagnosis, and evidence-based treatment of hearing, balance, and other auditory disorders for people of all ages.”
