Speech-Language Pathology

“If all my possessions were taken from me and I had the power to keep just one. I’d choose communication for by which I could regain all the rest.” –Daniel Webster

Our speech-language pathologists work with the full range of human communication to evaluate, diagnose, and treat speech, language, and swallowing disorders. Speech-language pathologists are required to have either a master’s or doctoral level degree in speech-language pathology before taking a national board examination and completing a supervised Clinical Fellowship Year. Typical areas of study include anatomy and physiology, neurolinguistics, speech science, physical science, human development, psychology, phonetics, social/behavioral sciences, linguistics, and semantics. Our therapists are licensed to practice in North Carolina and maintain certification by the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association.
