What is a Speech Pathologist?

Speech Pathology stems from two keywords. Speech, meaning communication, and pathology, meaning someone who studies cause and effect. Together, these words refer to someone who provides therapy for communication and swallowing disorders. A paediatric speech pathologist supports children from 16 months to 18 years.
