Such problems include difficulties with articulation (pronunciation of the speech sounds), fluency (such as stuttering), vocal nodules caused by improper voice use, as well as problems with organizing heard or spoken language that result from brain disorders or strokes. These professionals also work with patients who have conditions such as cleft palate, mental retardation, and hearing loss. Speech-language pathologists work closely with hearing specialists (audiologists) to treat children and adults whose hearing problems affect their communication skills.
