Speech Therapy versus Speech Pathology

For the school setting “Speech Therapy” is an obsolete title.  The case has been made (cf.  4. Educational Speech Pathology) for a hybrid model incorporating educational theory, medical views, school practices and federal regulations into assessment and intervention.  The medical model contributes but is not  inclusive.

Yet times change slowly.   A google search for frequency of mention shows these numbers:

Speech therapy—–8,320,000

Speech pathology—–1,222,000

Speech-language pathology—–943,000
