2. Why are we called Speech-Language Pathologists?

The “Speech” part:

  • pronunciation
  • being able to include all the sounds and syllables of a word

The Language part:

  • understanding of words
  • understanding of directions
  • vocabulary
  • number of words per sentence
  • grammar

Children often need help in one of these two areas, and sometimes they may need help in both areas.
