Explanation:
At http://home.vicnet.net.au/~sppathau/factsheet1.1.html.I found this:


A speech pathologist has been trained to assess and treat people who have a communication disability. Speech pathologists complete a degree at university which encompasses all aspects of communication including speech, writing, reading, signs, symbols and gestures. Speech pathologists also work with people who have difficulties swallowing food and drink.

Speech pathologists or speech-language pathologists were formerly known as speech therapists. They are different from speech and drama teachers.
