  • May is Better Hearing and Speech Month. Speech and language disorders can affect anyone at any age.
    Millions of infants, children and adults in America suffer from a communication or swallowing disorder.
    Speech-language pathologists are the professionals who treat all types of speech, language, voice and related disorders.
    In addition, they assess and treat swallowing disorders. They hold at least a master’s degree and are certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. In Kansas, they also are licensed by the state.
    Whether it’s a difficulty in swallowing or a disorder such as stuttering, delayed language or a voice problem, a person’s ability to learn and interact with others can be affected.
    If you suspect you or a loved one may be experiencing a communication or swallowing disorder, McPherson Hospital urges you to consult a local speech-language pathologist.
