Speech-Language Pathology

The speech-language pathology division of The Charity League Speech and Hearing Center is dedicated to helping each child reach his or her communication potential. Our speech-language pathologists have extensive knowledge in many areas related to a child’s speech, language, cognition, and feeding/swallowing abilities. These professionals not only evaluate, but also treat patients in regularly scheduled therapy settings.

Our speech-language pathology division works closely with other specialty clinics at Children’s of Alabama including: Aerodigestive Program, Cleft and Craniofacial Center, Concussion Clinic, ENT, Medical Autism Clinic, and Rehabilitation Medicine.
