A community of Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs), Speech Therapists (STs), Speech-Language Therapists (SLTs), Clinical Fellowship Clinicians (SLP-CFs), Speech-Language Pathology Assistants (SLPAs), graduate students, graduate clinicians, and undergraduate students. We discuss therapy ideas, share stories, share informative links, and give general advice through our personal experience and research.

Speech-Language Pathologists, sometimes called speech therapists, assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent communication and swallowing disorders in patients. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders result from a variety of causes such as a stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, a cleft palate, cerebral palsy, or emotional problems.

Speech-language pathologists work with patients who have problems with speech, such as being unable to speak at all or speaking with difficulty, or with rhythm and fluency, such as stuttering. They may work with those who are unable to understand language or with people who have voice disorders, such as inappropriate pitch or a harsh voice. Find out more about SLPs here and here.

If you have a speech or language concern, please contact your local speech therapist. You can find a therapist in your area using ASHA's Professional Finder. Speech pathologists can talk about language, development, and the field in general, but they cannot diagnose or treat in this subreddit.

Feeling burn out or job stress? Consider talking to a mental health professional or researching strategies for anxiety, stress, and depression. Just as we cannot diagnose/treat speech and language disorders in this subereddit, we can only offer support, not true mental health counseling.
