Speech Language Pathology Referral Guidelines

Who do I refer for speech evaluations? Does my patient need to be assessed for a swallowing disorder? Is my child stuttering? Is this child's speech and language developing normally? Should word-finding problems and memory deficits trigger a referral for speech therapy after a stroke? These are the questions we hope to answer by providing you with the following referral guidelines.

Within each category below, you'll find the following useful topics: (1) most common etiologies, (2) related terms, (3) potential consequences, and (4) behaviors that should trigger a referral to a speech-language pathologist.
