Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) work with infants and children to address cognitive communication, expressive and receptive language, articulation and fluency, and social communication. Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists also address oral motor and swallowing skills necessary for success with feeding. They strive to improve functional communication and mealtime success through the use of fun and motivating activities.
