SLPs work with children and adults of all ages, although many clinics specialize by age group and/or clinical diagnosis. Sometimes, families of infants, toddlers, or school-aged children may seek services if they don’t qualify for early intervention or school services—or they might just prefer a private SLP of their choice. Adults may see SLPs in outpatient settings as well as through home health and inpatient/residential settings (depending on insurance coverage).
