The Speech Language Pathology Assistant first obtains, if needed, observation and clinical hours to qualify for their professional license.
Clients are received from the main office and the SLP-A works closely with the SLP to identify treatment plans. The SLP-Assistant develops relationships with the client/client guardian and is responsible for their own schedule. A full time, benefit eligible caseload consists of 30 or more visits per week consistently ($25/hour). 90% productivity is expected.
A strong mentoring program is available. You become part of a team that services your client. Researching, developing and creating approved CE courses on a subject of interest to you is just one way to distinguish yourself in preparation for grad school.
