The practice of speech-language pathology involves: Providing prevention, screening, consultation, assessment and diagnosis, treatment, intervention, management, counseling, and follow-up services for disorders of:

    • speech (i.e., articulation, fluency, resonance, and voice including aeromechanical components of respiration);
    • language (i.e., phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatic/social aspects of communication) including comprehension and expression in oral, written, graphic, and manual modalities; language processing; preliteracy and language-based literacy skills, including phonological awareness;

    • Swallowing or other upper aerodigestive functions such as infant feeding and aeromechanical events (evaluation of esophogeal function is for the purpose of referral to medical professionals);

    • Cognitive aspects of communication (e.g. attention, memory, problem solving, executive functions):

    • Sensory awareness related to communication, swallowing or other upper aerodigestive functions.
