The Learning Grove: Speech-Language Pathology, Inc. is committed to provide people the opportunity to participate fully within the society. We are continuously seeking better assessment and intervention techniques and technologies to serve our clients, speech-language pathology support personnel, and students. Audiologists specialize in preventing and assessing hearing and balance disorders as well as providing audiologic treatment, including hearing aids. Speech-Language Pathologists identify, assess, and treat speech and language problems, including swallowing disorders.
Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) provide a wide range of services, mainly on an individual basis. SLPs also provide support for families and support groups, and provide information for the general public. Speech-Language Pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Speech-language pathologists collaborate with other health care professionals, often working as part of a multidisciplinary team. SLPs provide referrals to audiologists and others, and provide information to health care professionals (including physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, dietitians), educators, behavior consultants (Applied Behavior Analysis) and parents, as dictated by the individual client's needs..
