Speech and Language Therapy Services at Covenant Health

If you don’t fully grasp the role of a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP)—you’re not alone. 

SLPs are accustomed to explaining their wide scope of practice in targeting the speech, language, cognition and swallowing skills of those in need. 

While SLPs are skilled in working on the speech skills of those who have need, they’re also qualified experts in addressing issues with swallowing function  targeting language and cognitive issues in stroke recovery, and in improving skills in memory and thinking.
