Speech-language pathologists work closely with physicians, nurses, dietitians, and other health care professionals.

SLPs can also help you understand your eating and swallowing difficulties, provide strategies to make swallowing safer and easier, help you avoid complications of swallowing difficulties, such as weight loss, aspiration and lung infections, improve swallowing skills and oral intake after cancer treatment, improve oral intake after tube feeding, and reduce anxiety around swallowing concerns.
Referrals are accepted from any health care professional.
