The one word that most accurately describes this profession is diversity. As a speech-language pathologist you may choose to work in a variety of settings. Many speech-language pathologists work in schools helping children who are unable to master specific speech and/or language skills. Others work in special settings where those who are admitted have similar needs, such as children with hearing impairments or those who are emotionally or mentally impaired. Other professionals choose to work with adults, most commonly in hospitals, clinics, and rehabilitation centers. They typically work with individuals who have suffered from a head injury or have had a stroke. Some professionals work in psychiatric settings, helping patients learn to communicate more effectively.
