Communication means talking, writing, reading and understanding. The SLT's job is to help people to communicate as best they can.
SLTs work with people who:
- Have difficulty speaking because their muscles don’t work properly
- Have problems understanding or using language
- Have stammers
- Have voice problems
- Have difficulty swallowing
SLTs work in hospitals, schools, at people's homes and in health centres. They work with lots of different people, from small children to elderly people.
