A Speech, Language and Swallowing Pathologist assesses, diagnoses and treats all forms of speech, language, voice, communication, cognition and swallowing difficulties. The role of the SLSP is to work with the client and their family to provide an assessment and treatment for speech, language, voice, communication, cognition and swallowing difficulties, which will improve the client’s integration into school, work and / or their home environment.
If an Assessment has been conducted within the past year, the Assessment report can still be used as it can still provide an accurate representation of the client’s performance. However, at times, the SLSP might require you or your family member to repeat an Assessment or conduct other Assessments to ensure that the correct diagnosis is reached. These are the circumstances where reassessment might be required:
A therapy treatment plan can range in time, a shorter treatment plan could be from correcting a /t/ or /b/ sound, to longer periods of time working with a client who is deaf, has Down Syndrome or is recovering from a stroke. We look at each case individually and work with you and your family to provide the best Assessment and treatment possible.
Each therapy treatment plan is highly individualized to each client. The treatment plan will address a client’s needs whether they require speech, language, voice, communication, cognition and / or swallowing therapy.
A treatment plan may include:
The frequency and duration of therapy will be dependent on the severity of the condition. On average, a therapy session will be 45 minutes long although this can change based on the client’s schedules or the severity of the diagnosis.
Upon the initial assessment with the SLSP’s treatment goals and plan for therapy intervention, the client’s progress and status change can alter the length of therapy needed before discharge from therapy.
