They work with people who have difficulty communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, dementia and hearing loss, as well as other problems that can affect speech and language.
People who experience difficulties swallowing food and drink safely can also be helped by a speech pathologist.
Work as a speech pathologist in one of the following areas:
- private and public hospitals
- rehabilitation centres

- schools and disability organisations
- private practices.
