A speech-language pathologist evaluates patients to determine the cause of various speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders affecting all ages. Depending on the cause of the problem, therapy is executed to improve deficits. Speech language pathologists obtain a master’s degree to practice and they are required to pass a national certification examination for the American Speech-Language-Hearing Society.
