What Do Health Care SLPs Treat?
Speech-language pathologists working with adults in health care settings [PDF] spend a considerable portion of their time on swallowing (42 percent), followed by aphasia (16 percent), dementia (15 percent), and traumatic brain injury (8 percent), according to a recent survey completed by more than 2,000 ASHA-certified SLPs from a variety of health care settings. The survey achieved a 54 percent response rate. Additional survey results are available on ASHA's website.
Information from the National Outcomes Measurement Database also demonstrates the types and frequency of medical and speech-language diagnoses that SLPs encounter in their patients.
