Speech-language pathologists and audiologists work with people of all ages to identify, assess and treat a wide range of communication disorders. Speech-language pathologists are health professionals who identify, diagnose and treat communication and swallowing disorders across the lifespan. Audiologists are hearing health professionals who identify, diagnose and manage individuals with peripheral or central hearing loss, tinnitus, vestibular and balance disorders and other communication disorders across the lifespan. Communication health assistants are specifically trained to provide clinical services under the supervision of a speech-language pathologist or audiologist.
