Speech-Language Pathology


The purpose of this guide is to define the subject of Speech-Language Pathology and inform students, faculty, and our community of the many types of resources and search methods available to facilitate study, be it scholarly research or personal interest.

Speech-Language Pathology is the clinical study, diagnosis and treatment of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders, such as stuttering, apraxia, aphasia, dysphagia, and dysarthria.

Phonology, fluency, and resonance of speech, as well as receptive language (cognition) and expressive language, are the chief categories of study.
