Speech Pathology is the assessment and support of people who have problems communicating and using language. The role of a Speech Pathologist also focuses on those who struggle to swallow, eat and drink normally.
How do Speech Pathologists Help?
Healthcare professionals taking on Speech Pathology jobs must be registered with the relevant professional body because work in this sector requires specific training, knowledge and specialist skills, which can be used in conjunction with other healthcare workers to help overcome difficulties. Using a combination of practical skill and knowledge of their field, Speech Pathologists aid their patients with problems such as:
Being understood when speaking
Using and understanding language
Living with stammers
Decreased ability to feed, chew or swallow
Issues with communication are not limited to any particular age group; they work with all ages from young children to fully grown adults and the elderly. Why? Because trouble communicating or using/understanding language can be the result of such a wide range of things including disease, injury, strokes or cancer and many more.
Using specially tailored therapy programmes, patients are treated according to their needs. Most patients’ parents/carers are also given training and advice on how to continue therapy programmes at home, hopefully speeding up the rehabilitation process.
What do you need for Speech Pathology jobs?
An approved undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Speech Pathology
Excellent ability to communicate with and listen to all ages
An understanding nature to gain patients’ trust – they may be uncooperative, frightened or frustrated at first
Great teamwork skills for working with other healthcare professionals
A capacity for creativity and designing bespoke programmes
A valid driving license to make travelling between patients easier
Speech Pathology jobs also require professionals to have empathy, assertiveness, emotional stability, mental stamina and a good sense of humour. It’s important to remember that taking on speech roles will put therapists in a range of settings, working with a wide spectrum of people from all walks of life.
