speech/language pathology team
Our staff hold master’s degrees and are licensed by the State of Ohio. We also employ one of only 19 pediatric board recognized specialists in swallowing and swallowing disorders in the world.
The Specialty Board on Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders is a national board which provides recognition to speech-language pathologists with advanced knowledge and skills for evaluating and treating children with swallowing disorders. Dayton Children’s hospital supports specialty recognition, employs speech-language pathologists who hold the credential, and encourages all speech-language pathologists on staff to strive to achieve this recognition.
The speech therapy department welcomes phone calls to 937- 641-3070 during our normal business hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.
A physician referral is necessary prior to the child’s first outpatient visit. All follow up appointments will be made during your clinic visit or by calling central scheduling at 937-641-4000.
