Speech-Language Pathologists may offer personal therapy for the person to help with speech production issues like stuttering. They may consult with the worker’s boss on ways in which the person might be accommodated in the workplace, or modifications that might be made in the work or instruction environment.
Speech-language pathologists (SLP) can create plans that cater to the personal needs of the patient. If speech is not realistic for a patient, the pathologist will make a decision upon an alternative and augmentative device or method to facilitate communication in the workplace.
