Ever wonder what a speech/language pathologist does? Speech/language pathologists help individuals with brain injury, reading and learning difficulties, stuttering and other speaking impairments, feeding and swallowing problems, balance and hearing disorders, and more!
Through hands-on activities and simulations, you’ll learn about the anatomy and physiology of the brain, ear, and vocal tract. You will discover how to use assistive technology to communicate, learn what it takes to produce sounds, and even analyze voice samples. You'll investigate different swallowing techniques and discover how different food and drink textures affect patients with swallowing difficulties. Through this class, you will gain basic knowledge on how to treat patients, complete progress evaluations, and implement treatment plans that will help patients.
