From individuals with dyslexia or down syndrome, to stroke victims who have lost the ability to speak, to someone who has acquired a traumatic brain injury that affects how their brain sends signals to their speech mechanisms, the needs of a speech pathologist are vast. Speech & Language Specialist work diligently to provide the best, most appropriate, and realistic outcomes for those struggling with communication disorders. This course is designed for individuals who have an interest in exploring how literacy and language interact in the body and mind, as well as how various diagnoses and disorders can affect one’s ability to retrieve language and communicate, be it in writing, speaking, or even motor abilities.
