“What we love about being Speech-Language Pathologists is the ability to help people across the lifespan, from helping infants in the NICU with feeding, watching children gain a voice with augmentative alternative communication devices, to assisting people regain the ability to speak and swallow following brain injuries or strokes. It is very rewarding knowing that what we do is making a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.” ~ Encore Rehabilitation Speech Therapy Team at USA Health Children’s and Women’s Hospital
