Pediatric expertise where caregivers diagnose and treat communication disorders
At Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's, speech pathologists collaborate with other pediatric surgical and medical specialties, such as otolaryngology (ENT), and other services, such as audiology, to treat the overall communication needs of children. Nonverbal communication, such as reading and writing, is also emphasized.
Speech-language pathologists are skilled in treating verbal communication disorders. They include issues that affect voice pitch, tone, and syntax—all elements of successful speech delivery.
