Speech-language pathologists assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent speech, language and communication disorders.
Speech-language pathologists work with people who cannot make speech sounds or cannot make them clearly. They also work with those who have:

- Voice-quality problems, such as inappropriate pitch or harsh voice
- Problems understanding and producing language
- Cognitive communication problems, such as attention, memory and problem-solving disorders
- Oral motor problems that cause eating and swallowing difficulties
