(aspect3) Communication disorders can be as simple as a shutter that affects the way people talk and deliver a message. It can be through childhood or and entire life. It can affect day to day activities for people. Most try to hide this to reduce the impact of how others react to the disorder. Oral Communications are taught through specific skills through behavioral aspects. “People may learn to start saying words in a slightly slower and less physically tense manner. They may also learn to control or monitor their breathing. When learning to control speech rate, people often begin by practicing smooth, fluent speech at rates that are much slower than typical speech, using short phrases and sentences. Over time, people learn to produce smooth speech at faster rates, in longer sentences, and in more challenging situations until speech sounds both fluent and natural.”- asha

(aspect3) Early intervention is important with certain disorders that need a SLP. Children with cleft palate need help with vocabulary and oral airflow. This awareness for children is a building block to allow them to be successful in the future with communication. Specific toys can increase airflow activity for the child. This will increase sound production as exercise to strengthen the child’s vocals and speech.

Working in the hospital setting as a speech pathologist: reccommendation to prepare for the medical setting. Taking science courses and job shadowing to truly make sure this is were you will be comfortable.

Benefits of working in a hospital can mean there are so many things you can do.

Helping parents and the student understand the speech process is very important to work together through time they have together to improve the student as much as possible. Regular meetings discussing the progress and improvements of the student is nice for the parents to see where the child stands and how they can continue to help even when the child is not in the classroom working with the speech pathologist.

Speech pathologists have a big task to consult and collaborate when there is a child who has difficulty communicating. Teachers play a big role as well to work with the speech pathologist in order to put the student’s needs in best interest. Lesson plans are aren’t just created for a child with a speech disorder usually other children learn new concepts through these lessons as well.

“When speech paths work with children in a clinical setting, they don’t get the opportunity to see kids in a naturalistic environment. Working in the school setting is a place that kids spend most of their day, learning new skills. School is like a child’s “workplace” and it is where they develop a sense of themselves as independent and distinct from their family unit.”-author

In this setting SLPs will have to diagnose and treat ranges of communication disorders, swallowing problems, work with a team to treat patients, provide counseling to patients and families, and educate other staff working with the patient.

Hospitals and Clinics can widely treat disorders from young infants to say a stroke in an adult and hearing loss in children or the elderly. Addressing the conditions of patients is more to have a base to start with and work up having goals to reach.

Pediatric and Adult Therapist have different tasks. Pediatric is only children, these children have difficulty in speaking and require treatment. Pronunciation along with the fluency of speaking is usually unable to be understood. Swallowing and feeding are factors in working with young children to help them learn or relearn to develop these skills. Where as adult clients have usually undergone a type of head trauma or an illness that affects the overall speech. Stroke victims are a primary client that are taught to speak again.
