Information on Private Practice Speech-Language and Hearing Services in Saskatchewan
Communication is an essential tool used by people from birth to death. It allows us to exchange information with others for many reasons. However, 1 in 10 Canadians has a speech, language or hearing problem. For people with communication disorders, the services of a speech-language pathologist or audiologist may help. Audiologists are trained professionals in the study of normal hearing processes and hearing loss. They are specialists in identifying and managing hearing loss and balance disorders. Speech-Language Pathologists are trained professionals in the study of human communication, its development and disorders. They are specialists in assessing and treating speech, language, voice, fluency, cognitive, and other related communication disorders, as well as swallowing difficulties.
