Many adults and children experience speech, language, or swallowing diseases and disorders that range from problems producing speech sounds and expressing ideas to feeding and swallowing difficulties.

Speech-language pathologists are specially trained to help people of all ages improve their speech and swallowing skills. They perform careful evaluations so they can deliver personalized care to each patient. Using exercises, modifications to how you eat, and other techniques, they help you improve your ability to speak or eat.

At University of Miami Health System, we use a team approach to these issues. Our speech language pathologists work collaboratively with experts to diagnose, evaluate, and treat speech, language and swallowing disorders through clinical, surgical, and therapy treatments.
