Speech Pathology

Introduction

What is Speech-Language Pathology?

Speech-language pathology encompasses disorders that affect a person's speech, language, cognition, voice, or swallowing. Communication and swallowing disorders can be congenital or acquired, and can affect individuals of any age.

The Speech Pathology Clinic

The Tripler Army Medical Center Speech Pathology Clinic provides care to inpatients and outpatients with communication and swallowing disorders. Services include prevention, identification, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation.  

Speech pathologists evaluate and treat patients with swallowing problems to improve nutrition and hydration; provide treatment to patients with voice, articulation, or fluency disorders; help rehabilitate cognitive-linguistic deficits resulting from traumatic brain injury; help survivors of stroke regain the use of language; and work with children who have language and speech problems associated with hearing loss or craniofacial disorders. Speech pathologists serve on TAMC�s Cochlear Implant Team, Craniofacial Team, TBI Team, Child Study Team, and Stroke Team, to provide multidisciplinary care to patients. Family members play an important role in the rehabilitation process. The goal of treatment is to improve patients� health, independence, and quality of life.

All of our staff speech pathologists hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), are licensed by the State of Hawaii Board of Speech Pathology and Audiology, and have earned Awards for Continuing Education from ASHA.
