What to Look for in a Speech Pathologist
Working with a speech pathologist is an intimate process. This individual will help you or your child to improve your skills in speaking, but it is important that you feel comfortable enough to open up to them. You also need to consider your overall goals for the process, expectations, and specific condition needs. The best providers will work closely with you through most types of treatment options.
A speech pathologist should be a licensed professional. They should have speech-language skills. A higher level of education is desirable. They should be able to then help with diagnosis, creating a treatment plan, and developing workable solutions to fit just about any need.
