Professionals who can Help

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are trained to diagnose and treat these deficits, so if you have concerns regarding any of these areas, ask your doctor for a referral. SLPs do much more than help with speech – they are interested in communication, and so anything that can affect communication, including memory, planning, organization and emotion, is within the scope of an SLP’s practice.


Occupational therapists (OTs) often work with cognitive deficits that affect activities of daily living.
