Welcome to Sawnee's Speech-Language Department Page
What is a Speech-Language Pathologist?
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP's) are also sometimes referred to as speech therapists. They are educated in the study of human communication, its development, and its disorders. They hold a master's degree and state certification/licensure in the field, and may also hold a Certificate of Clinical Competency from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association. SLP's treat disorders in four main areas: articulation, language (receptive and expressive), fluency and voice. Because we are communication specialists, SLP's are also trained in Augmentative and Alternative Communication methods (AAC).
The speech-language pathologists at Sawnee are available to answer any questions you might have about your child's communication development. We hope you enjoy our pages and welcome your questions and concerns. Don't forget to check out our individual web pages at the links below.
