Speech therapists assess, diagnose, treat and help to prevent disorders related to speech language, cognitive-communication, voice, swallowing and fluency.

Swallowing disorder, also called dysphagia, can involve impairment of the mouth, throat or esophagus during swallowing, which can lead to aspiration pneumonia, dehydration, malnutrition or reduced quality of life. The problem can occur at any stage of the normal swallowing process, in which difficulties can range from a total inability to swallow to coughing or choking which is referred to as aspiration. - Information provided by National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
