The Magic of Words: A Look at Speech Language Pathology at CBS in Honor of Better Hearing and Speech Month



​                                         “Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic,”                                                                                       - Albus Dumbledore   Of all the quotes referring to the power of communication, this one speaks to my heart. As a pediatric Speech Language Pathologist (SLP), I get to see the wonder in a child’s eye when we play with a new toy or share an experience outside. I get to hear the joy in a parent’s voice when they tell me about the first time their child said, “I love you,” or even when that same child won’t quiet down when it’s time for bed. What I do isn't magic, but their words are and I’m lucky enough to get to help them create their own form of magic.
