  1. A Speech and language pathologist is specialist with a role to assess, diagnose, treat and help prevent speech, language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing, fluency and other related disorders. Speech and language pathologists have many job responsibilities besides working with students or patients on communication disorders. Even though it is very obvious I find it so interesting the two major tools that a speech and language pathologist needs to use when working with a student or a patient is their listening and observation skills, because they are looking for things that the average person might not recognize as a communication disorder or deregulation. Speech and language pathologists need to listen and observe to see where they need to work with their students or patients to help them with their communication needs. The most surprising role of a speech and language pathologist is their role as a teacher. Speech and language pathologist treat communication disorders but they also help students learn new vocabulary to create an expanding word bank.
