West Island Speach and Hearing Services
A Speech Therapist may also be known as a speech-language pathologist. Audiologists and speech-language pathologists diagnose, evaluate and treat human communication disorders including hearing, speech, language and voice disorders. In audiology, the demand for corrective and preventive care comes primarily from adults who have hearing problems due to diseases of the ear, overexposure to noise or to aging, and also from children with hearing problems.
