Who Are Speech-Language Pathologists, and What Do They Do?

Speech-language pathologists , also called SLPs , are experts in communication.

SLPs work with people of all ages, from babies to adults. SLPs treat many types of communication and swallowing problems. These include problems with:

Speech sounds —how we say sounds and put sounds together into words. Other words for these problems are articulation or phonological disorders, apraxia of speech , or dysarthria .

Language —how well we understand what we hear or read and how we use words to tell others what we are thinking. In adults this problem may be called aphasia .

Literacy—how well we read and write. People with speech and language disorders may also have trouble reading, spelling, and writing.

Social communication —how well we follow rules, like taking turns, how to talk to different people, or how close to stand to someone when talking. This is also called pragmatics .

Voice —how our voices sound. We may sound hoarse, lose our voices easily, talk too loudly or through our noses, or be unable to make sounds.

Fluency —also called stuttering , is how well speech flows. Someone who stutters may repeat sounds, like t-t-t-table, use "um" or "uh," or pause a lot when talking. Many young children will go through a time when they stutter, but most outgrow it.

Cognitive-communication—how well our minds work. Problems may involve memory, attention, problem solving, organization, and other thinking skills.

Feeding and swallowing —how well we suck, chew, and swallow food and liquid. A swallowing disorder may lead to poor nutrition, weight loss, and other health problems. This is also called dysphagia .

Overview of Aphasia

Aphasia meaning in urdu.

یہ بیماری بولنے کی صلاحیت کو متاثر کرتی ہے، اس بیماری کی وجہ سے دماغ کا وہ حصہ متاثر ہوتا ہے جو بولنے کی صلاحیت کے متعلق ہوتا ہے۔ اس بیماری کا شکار افراد دوسرے سے مؤثر طریقے سے بات چیت نہیں کر پاتے، اس لیے دوسروں کو ان کی بات سمجھنے میں مشکلات کا سامنا کرنا پڑتا ہے۔ بہت سارے لوگوں کو اسٹروک کی وجہ سے اس بیماری کا سامنا کرنا پڑتا ہے۔ درمیانی عمر کے انسانوں کو اس بیماری کا زیادہ سامنا کرنا پڑتا ہے۔ اس بیماری کو عام طور پر بہت سی اقسام میں تقسیم کیا جاتا ہے۔

Aphasia is a communication disorder. It is a language impairment and affects the ability to speak, understand, read, or write. It occurs after a brain injury or as an aftereffect of a stroke . Brain injury can include head trauma, a slowly progressing brain tumor, or some progressive neurological disease. 

Aphasia can co-occur with other speech disorders like dysarthria or apraxia of speech. Usually, the left side of the brain is responsible for speech and other related activities. 

It can be mild or severe depending upon several conditions. The most important of which is, the cause and extent of brain damage. Once the major cause of aphasia is identified, the treatment of aphasia can be started. 

Signs and Symptoms of Aphasia

A person suffering from Aphasia faces issues in 4 ways associated with the understanding and usage of language. These are: 

  • Reading 
  • typing/writing 
  • Listening 
  • Speaking 

These four issues can affect one’s ability to converse in the following ways:

  • Speak in sentences that don't make any sense 
  • Speak unrecognizable words 
  • Write sentences that don't make any sense
  •  Not being able to comprehend someone else’s conversation 
  • Speak in short and incomplete sentences

Aphasia can occur as a result of brain damage or some other disorders like visual difficulties, mobility patterns, limb weakness, or issues with memory and thinking skills. 

Types of Aphasia

There are multiple types of aphasia. The condition of each type can be from mild to severe. For proper treatment, correct diagnoses are very important. The most common types of aphasia are: 

1- Broca’s Aphasia:

This is also known as Comprehensive Aphasia or nonfluent aphasia. People suffering from this type are better at comprehending other peoples’ speech than they can speak. They struggle to get words out and speak in short incomplete sentences. he/she might say, “Eat bread” or “Walk dog”. 

Although the sentences are incomplete and short, the listener can still understand them. The patient himself understands his ability to speak properly which can infuriate or annoy him. A person facing Broca's aphasia can also have right-sided paralysis or weakness.  

2- Wernicke’s Aphasia:

This is commonly also known as Expressive or fluent aphasia. The people having this type of aphasia can speak in long and complex sentences that don't make any sense. These sentences can include unrecognizable words and sounds or some unnecessary or misplaced words. As a result of this, they usually can't comprehend others’ speech and don't realize that others cant understand the, 

3- Global Aphasia 

Global aphasia results from extensive damage to the brain’s language networks. This type of aphasia is characterized by extreme difficulty in forming words and sentences and an inability to understand other conversations.  

A person having global aphasia can neither read nor write. 

It is usually observed immediately after a patient has suffered a stroke and can quickly recover if not much damage to the brain has been done. However, with extensive and more long-lasting damage, severe disability in speaking/ reading can occur. 

4- Anomic Aphasia 

In this type of aphasia, the person has this inability to supply words for the things they want to say. Especially nouns and verbs. This inability to supply suitable words can frustrate them. They can understand others’ speech well and can read as well but their ability to speak and write becomes limited. 

Some other types include primary progressive aphasia. This is a rare type of aphasia in which a patient loses the ability to talk, or read. Write and understand words over some time. This type of aphasia results from a progressive neurological disorder.

Causes of Aphasia

The most common cause of Aphasia is “Stroke”. As a result of the stroke, the blood vessel in the brain gets ruptured or a blockage occurs. This creates a loss of blood in the brain which leads to brain cell damage. 

Brain damage can also occur because of some brain injury, a slowly progressing brain tumor, or some neurological conditions. These conditions, like dementia , damage the brain and nervous system over time.

Primary progressive aphasia is used to describe language difficulty disorder that develops over time. This occurs due to the degeneration of brain cells responsible for language networks.in some cases, this type of aphasia can lead to disorders like dementia. 

In some cases, due to migraines , seizures , or a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) , one can have a temporary episode of aphasia. TIA occurs when a certain part of the brain does not get enough blood supply due to a blockage. People with TIA are more vulnerable to having a stroke shortly.

Happniness

Risk Factors of Aphasia Mostly older and middle-aged people are likely to get affected by this disorder. However, anyone from children to young adults can acquire it. It is most common in people aged 65 years and above as it is a result of neurological conditions and stroke which are more likely to affect older people. Prevention

Stroke is the known cause of aphasia, so it is not possible to prevent aphasia. However, following good lifestyle practices that reduce your risk of stroke can be a great help in preventing the problems. 

Some of the healthy lifestyle habits that reduce your chances of suffering from stroke include:

  • Consume a nutritionally balanced diet to support your brain functions
  • Ensure regular physical activity
  • Stress management
  • Abstain from smoking and alcohol consumption
  • Work on your sleep hygiene 
  • Keep your blood pressure controlled

Happniness

The first signs and symptoms of Aphasia will be observed by your doctor treating you for stroke or any brain injury. 

The confirmation of this disorder is done through a series of tests and exercises. Usually, an MRI or CT Scan  is done to examine the brain damage and find its precise location. A series of tests to examine the patient's ability to understand words, commands, answering questions, naming objects, and making a conversation are also conducted. 

Treatment of Aphasia | When to Consult a Doctor

The treatment of Aphasia can begin as soon as it is diagnosed. It is most effectively done through a series of therapy sessions related to communication skills. Usually, after a brain injury, as the recovery process begins, tremendous improvements in aphasia are also seen even without treatment.

Some of the factors that play a key role in determining the recovery of aphasia patient are: 

  • The extent of damage to brian 
  • Cause of brain injury 
  • The overall health of the patient 
  • Area of brain that is damaged 

Language therapy sessions are a great way of improving one's ability to communicate properly. Virtual pathologists are also an increasing trend among aphasia patients. Use of different speech-generating applications, gesture identification applications are also now used to help aphasia patients lead a normal life. 

What can you do as a family member of an aphasia patient?

If anyone form family or friends is suffering from this disorder, you take the following steps to understand them better and help them to converse properly: 

  • If possible, participate in their therapy sessions
  • Speak in short and simplified sentences 
  • Avoid using long and complex sentences
  • Repeat the keywords 
  • Minimize distraction 
  • Include the patient in your conversation 
  • Encourage the patient to take part in conversation through any medium (gesture, words, pointing, or drawing) 
  • Be patient and allow him/her as much as time as he/she requires 
  • Don't correct their sentences 
  • Don't speak in childish terms. Keep the conversation neutral for an adult level   

In case you exhibit any concerning signs and symptoms for aphasia, consult a medical professional as soon as possible.

What Is a Speech Pathologist?

Also Known as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) or Speech Therapist

  • What They Do
  • Conditions Treated

Training for Speech Pathologists

  • When to See an SLP

A speech pathologist, also known as a speech therapist, is a healthcare professional who helps you improve your speech and communication if you have been ill, injured, or have a chronic disability. Speech pathologists may also be called speech-language pathologists (SLP).

Speech pathologists also work with people who have difficulty swallowing food or drink to help them stay safe while eating.

This article examines the important work that speech pathologists do as part of a rehabilitation team of professionals. You will learn what conditions they treat and when you should seek out the services of an SLP.

What a Speech Pathologist Does

A speech pathologist is a trained medical professional who works with patients who are injured or ill and are having difficulty speaking or swallowing. They work to prevent, assess, and treat these disorders in adults and children.

Speech pathologists help people communicate, and this may involve:

  • Expressive communication : The ability to communicate verbally and nonverbally
  • Receptive communication : The ability to understand verbal and nonverbal communications

Some speech therapists work closely with audiologists (healthcare professionals who treat hearing and balance problems) to ensure that you can hear and understand language correctly. Others work with otolaryngologists , also called ear, nose, and throat physicians (ENTs), to help patients swallow food and drink safely and to assist patients with oral motor function.

Common Specialty Areas

Some speech pathologists have a more generalized practice, while others have a more narrow focus on specific areas or problems such as:

  • Social communication
  • Voice and vocal hygiene
  • Speech sound disorders

Some of the official certifications that a speech pathologist may receive include:

  •  Intraoperative monitoring
  •  Fluency disorders
  •  Swallowing and feeding disorders
  •  Child language disorders

Speech pathologists seeking specialty certification have to meet education, experience, and clinical practice requirements as established by independent specialty certification boards.

Where Speech Therapists Work

There are a variety of settings in which speech pathologists work. This may include:

  • Schools: Speech therapists working in schools help children with speech disorders learn to overcome their communication challenges.
  • Nursing homes: Speech therapists in nursing homes help patients with dementia or communication issues caused by other conditions like stroke learn communication strategies. They also work with staff on ways to help residents communicate more effectively.
  • Hospitals: A speech pathologist working in a hospital may help diagnose and treat language communication problems and swallowing disorders in hospitalized patients. 
  • Private practices: Speech pathologists may also work in private practices where they may specialize in one or more language problems or health conditions in specific populations.

Speech pathologists can also work as educators in colleges and universities, and they may be involved in research.

Conditions Speech Therapists Treat

Speech pathologists work with people of various ages and with a variety of conditions. They sometimes work with young children who are having problems speaking properly, or they may help older adults with cognitive communication (communication that is affected by memory, attention, organization, and problem-solving, which are examples of executive functioning ).

A stroke can cause damage to the part of the brain responsible for language and communication. Depending on the extent of the stroke, this loss of ability may be short-term or long-term. A speech pathologist can help someone who is recovering from a stroke regain their ability to speak and understand language.

What is aphasia?

Aphasia is a condition of the brain that affects how you communicate with others. It is caused by damage to the part of the brain responsible for language and can affect your ability to speak and understand what is being said.

Hearing Loss

A speech pathologist may work with other professionals such as audiologists and ENTs to help assess, manage, and treat someone with hearing loss. Some of the things a speech pathologist might do to help someone with hearing loss include evaluating the person's speech, helping them improve listening skills, and working with them to develop alternative communication strategies.

Vocal Damage

Vocal cords can become damaged in various ways including persistent coughing and voice overuse. A speech pathologist can teach you muscle strengthing and voice rehabilitation excercises and other strategies to help your vocal cords heal (such as cough modification). 

English Language Learners

If you are learning a new language and wish to alter your accent, you may benefit from the services of a speech-language pathologist, as well. They can help you form words and sounds correctly to alter your normal speech in learning a new language.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury after a blow to the head or an accident that affects the parts of the brain that control language can also lead to problems with communication. A speech therapist can help someone with this type of injury recover lost speech and language skills.

Swallowing Disorders

Dysphagia is the medical term for difficulty swallowing. It can be caused by several different medical conditions including muscular problems, a narrowed esophagus, damage caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease, or esophageal cancer. 

Untreated dysphagia can lead to problems eating and drinking including choking. A speech pathologist can help you develop strategies for safe chewing and swallowing, including exercises, correct body position, and food preparation recommendations. 

People with autism can have difficulty with both written and spoken communication as well as body-language forms of communication such as pointing and waving. Autism is also associated with difficulties relating to and socializing with other people. 

A speech pathologist can help people with autism understand communication norms and improve their written and spoken communication skills. They can also work with the families of people with autism on strategies that can help develop communication skills.

Alzheimer's Disease

People with dementia or Alzheimer's disease may develop communication problems as the disease progresses. A speech therapist can help the person develop memory skills and other strategies that will help them communicate.

Speech pathologists also work with the family and caregivers of people with dementia so they can help the person implement communication tools and strategies.   

Fluency Disorders

Fluency disorder describes speech patterns characterized by differences in rate and rhythm compared to how most people speak. 

Stuttering is the most common example of a fluency disorder. Another example is cluttering, which describes speech that is atypically fast and irregular.

Speech pathologists usually develop an individualized treatment plan for someone with a fluency disorder, which may include strategies such as:

  • Minimizing negative reactions to the problem
  • Increasing the person's acceptance of the problem
  • Improving confidence
  • Reducing avoidance behavior

Speech Sound Disorders

Speech sound disorders describe problems articulating words. People with speech sound disorders may be hard for others to understand. This can result in problems with social relationships, at work, or at school. 

Speech sound disorders are common in childhood and can be treated with the help of a speech pathologist. The pathologist will look at how the person moves their tongue, lips and jaw and help them learn the correct way to make sounds. 

People with speech sound disorders often have other problems with language; their speech therapist can also help them develop strategies to overcome these problems.

Gender-Affirming Voice Therapy

Voice therapy for transgender people can be an important part of gender-affirming healthcare. Learning to speak in ways that align with gender identity can improve a transgender person's quality of life as well as their social and psychological well-being.

A speech pathologist can help a transgender person learn to modify the pitch of their voice in ways that limit fatigue and damage to the vocal cords. They can also help the person learn nonverbal communication, articulation, and other strategies that can help their voice align with their gender identity.

To be a speech pathologist, a person must have a master's degree in communication disorders from a program accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology (CAA).

Many undergraduate and graduate programs in speech pathology require time spent observing a speech therapist at work prior to admission. This satisfies the requirement for entry into school and provides a good understanding of what a speech pathologist's job is like.

The first year of work as a speech therapist is called a clinical fellowship year. During this time, aspiring speech pathologists will work under the supervision of a licensed speech pathologist.

Additional steps to becoming a speech pathologist include:

  • Obtaining a certificate of clinical competence in SLP (CCC-SLP)
  • Passing a national Praxis examination for Speech-Language Pathology
  • Applying for SLP licensure in the state in which you will be working

A speech pathologist's education does not end when they leave school and pass the national examination. They must also fulfill continuing education requirements from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) to maintain their license.

When to See a Speech Pathologist

There are certain instances in which you may need to see a speech pathologist. For example, parents commonly notice small speech or language impairments in their children and seek out an SLP.

Adults may want to work with a speech pathologist to help with new or existing communication or language problems.

If you become hospitalized, you may have a speech pathologist come to your room and work with you at your bedside. They can help you with speech and language, swallowing and diet issues, and can work with other members of a rehab team to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for you to return home.

When to see a medical professional

Many speech and language disorders benefit from the help of a speech therapist, but some are more urgent than others. Any sudden onset of impaired speech should be considered an emergency, as the person may be experiencing a life-threatening problem such as a stroke.

Children should be closely monitored for speech and language development. If your child does not have the language skills expected for their age, it is a good idea to see a speech pathologist as soon as you can.

If you or a loved one is having trouble communicating or understanding language, then working with a speech pathologist may be a good idea.

SLPs treat children and adults with a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, stroke, neurological injuries, autism, and more. They are trained to assess your condition and offer strategies to improve your expressive and receptive communication and swallowing function.
