Course Description

Welcome to this introductory lecture. If you are a parent, caregiver, or related professional (such as a special education teacher, physical therapist, etc), I've designed this lecture as a “crash course” in the field of speech-language pathology. A speech-language pathologist is more than just a professional who helps someone correctly say the "s" sound or helps someone who stutters. The field of speech-language pathology is much more than that.

In this lecture, you will learn about the four common areas, typically treated by speech-language pathologists. As a parent or caregiver, I believe arming yourself with more knowledge, allows for better conversations and outcomes with your child’s pediatrician. As a professional in a related field, learning more information about the field of speech-language pathology, allows you access to additional knowledge, when considering referring a child to a speech-language pathologist.
