Sara Stewart has been a speech pathologist at Floyd County Medical Center (FCMC) for almost 30 years now. What she realized is that most people have no clue what she actually does until they need her services. Simply put, a speech pathologist focuses on communication and swallowing.
Stewart says kids who can’t even move their mouths can be helped through sign language training or a computer that can speak for the child. She also explains that speech therapy isn’t impossibly expensive.
