Our Speech-Language Pathologists work with children and adults who suffer from speech/articulation, language, voice, swallowing, or cognitive deficits. A Speech-Language Pathologist holds a Master’s degree or a PhD and has earned the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA). Services offered through CHN’s Speech-Language Pathology department include evaluation as well as customized treatment plans. The Speech-Language Pathologist will work closely with the patient's physician to meet his/her needs.
