There are different “hats” that a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) must wear to be effective. These hats are skills that we use when working with you as a client, to fully flesh out treatment needs and a plan that is suited specifically to you.
On Tuesday, July 9th, the Well Said team had a professional development day. Here are some highlights of what we shared and what we learned:
Speaking may seem as easy as opening your mouth to allow the sounds to come out. However, speech-language pathologists are challenged to return to the four subsystems of speech: respiration, phonation, resonance, and articulation.
We often work with people who know that they have trouble with certain sounds, but who say they don’t hear the difference between their version and the “correct” version. How can they learn to say what they can’t even hear?

Myofascial Release is a form of manual therapy that helps issues of pain and movement dysfunction. Valuing clients as partners in recovery is crucial as they are the experts of their body, their pain and their concerns. The greatest therapy efficacy is observed through consistent communication between the therapist and client, where the client reports what they feel and the location in which they feel it.
Many of the clients who visit our clinic have never seen a speech-language pathologist before. Take a look here and learn about what to expect.
