                            [body] => Who Are Speech-Language Pathologists, and What Do They Do? Speech-language pathologists, also called SLPs, are experts in communication. SLPs work with people of all ages, from babies to adults. SLPs treat many types of communication and swallowing problems. These include problems with: Speech sounds—how we say sounds and put sounds together into words. Other words for these problems are articulation or phonological disorders, apraxia of speech, or dysarthria. Language—how well we understand what we hear or read and how we use words to tell others what we are thinking. In adults this problem may be called aphasia. Literacy—how well we read and write. People with speech and language disorders may also have trouble reading, spelling, and writing. Social communication—how well we follow rules, like taking turns, how to talk to different people, or how close to stand to someone when talking. This is also called pragmatics. Voice—how our voices sound. We may sound hoarse, lose our voices easily, talk too loudly or through our noses, or be unable to make sounds. Fluency—also called stuttering, is how well speech flows. Someone who stutters may repeat sounds, like t-t-t-table, use "um" or "uh," or pause a lot when talking. Many young children will go through a time when they stutter, but most outgrow it. Cognitive-communication—how well our minds work. Problems may involve memory, attention, problem solving, organization, and other thinking skills. Feeding and swallowing—how well we suck, chew, and swallow food and liquid. A swallowing disorder may lead to poor nutrition, weight loss, and other health problems. This is also called dysphagia.

What Speech-Language Pathologists Do About this section. Speech-language pathologists must be able to listen to and communicate with their patient in order to determine the right course of treatment. Speech-language pathologists (sometimes called speech therapists) assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent communication and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders result from a variety of causes, such as a stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, Parkinson’s disease, a cleft palate, or autism. Duties. Speech-language pathologists typically do the following: Evaluate  levels of speech, language, or swallowing difficulty Identify treatment options Create and carry out an individualized treatment plan that addresses  specific functional needs Teach children and adults how to make sounds and improve their voices and maintain fluency Help individuals improve vocabulary and sentence structure used in oral and written language Work with children and adults to develop and strengthen the muscles used to swallow Counsel individuals and families on how to cope with communication and swallowing disorders   Speech-language pathologists work with children and adults who have problems with speech and language, including related cognitive or social communication problems. They may be unable to speak at all, or they may speak with difficulty or have rhythm and fluency problems, such as stuttering. Speech-language pathologists may work with people who are unable to understand language or with those who have voice disorders, such as inappropriate pitch or a harsh voice. Speech-language pathologists also must complete administrative tasks, including keeping accurate records and documenting billing information. They record their initial evaluations and diagnoses, track treatment progress, and note any changes in a individual’s condition or treatment plan. Some speech-language pathologists specialize in working with specific age groups, such as children or the elderly. Others focus on treatment programs for specific communication or swallowing problems, such as those resulting from strokes, trauma, or a cleft palate. In medical facilities, speech-language pathologists work with physicians and surgeons, social workers, psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and other healthcare workers. In schools, they evaluate students for speech and language disorders and work with teachers, other school personnel, and parents to develop and carry out individual or group programs, provide counseling, and support classroom activities. For more information on teachers, see the profiles on preschool teachers, kindergarten and elementary school teachers, middle school teachers, high school teachers, and special education teachers.

How to Become a Speech-Language Pathologist About this section. Some speech-language pathologists specialize in working with specific age groups, such as children. Speech-language pathologists typically need at least a master’s degree. Most states require that speech-language pathologists be licensed. Requirements vary by state. Education. Speech-language pathologists typically need at least a master's degree. Although master's degree programs do not require a particular bachelor's degree for admission, they may require applicants to have taken certain courses in healthcare and related fields. Requirements vary by program. Graduate programs often include courses in speech and language development, age-specific speech disorders, alternative communication methods, and swallowing disorders. These programs also include supervised clinical experience. The Council on Academic Accreditation (CAA), part of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, accredits education programs in speech-language pathology. Graduation from an accredited program is required for certification and, often, for state licensure. Licenses, Certifications, and Registrations. All states regulate speech-language pathologists. Most states require speech-language pathologists to be licensed; other states require registration. Licensure typically requires at least a master’s degree from an accredited program, supervised clinical experience, and passing an exam. For specific requirements, contact your state’s medical or health licensure board. Speech-language pathologists can earn the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP), offered by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Certification typically satisfies some or all of the requirements for state licensure and may be required by some employers. To earn CCC-SLP certification, candidates must graduate from an accredited program, pass an exam, and complete a fellowship under the supervision of a certified speech-language pathologist. To maintain the CCC-SLP credential, speech-language pathologists must complete 30 hours of continuing education every 3 years. Speech-language pathologists who work in schools may need a specific teaching certification. For specific requirements, contact your state’s department of education or the private institution in which you are interested. Speech language pathologists may choose to earn specialty certifications in child language, fluency, or swallowing. Candidates who hold the CCC-SLP, meet work experience requirements, and pass a specialty certification exam may use the title Board Certified Specialist. Three organizations offer specialty certifications: American Board of Child Language and Language Disorders, American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders, and American Board of Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. Training. Candidates can gain hands-on experience through supervised clinical work, which is typically referred to as a fellowship. This training is a type of internship in that prospective speech-language pathologists apply and refine the skills learned during their academic program under the supervision of a certified speech-language pathologist. The CCC-SLP certification requires candidates to complete a fellowship lasting at least 36 weeks.  Important Qualities. Analytical skills. Speech-language pathologists must select the most appropriate diagnostic tools and analyze results to arrive at an accurate diagnosis and develop an appropriate treatment plan. Communication skills. Speech-language pathologists need to communicate test results, diagnoses, and proposed treatments in a way that individuals and their families can understand. Compassion. Speech-language pathologists work with people who are often frustrated by their difficulties. Speech-language pathologists must support emotionally demanding individuals and their families. Critical-thinking skills. Speech-language pathologists must adjust their treatment plans as needed, finding alternative ways to help. Detail oriented. Speech-language pathologists must take detailed notes on progress and treatment. Listening skills. Speech-language pathologists must listen to symptoms and concerns to decide on the appropriate course of treatment. Pay About this section. Speech-Language Pathologists.

As the large baby-boom population grows older, there will be more instances of health conditions such as strokes or dementia, which can cause speech or language impairments. Speech-language pathologists will be needed to treat the increased number of speech and language disorders in the older population. Increased awareness of speech and language disorders, such as stuttering, in younger children should lead to a need for more speech-language pathologists who specialize in treating that age group. Also, an increasing number of speech-language pathologists will be needed to work with children with autism to improve their ability to communicate and socialize effectively. In addition, medical advances are improving the survival rate of premature infants and victims of trauma and strokes, many of whom need help from speech-language pathologists.

Most full-time speech-language pathologists work 40 hours per week; some work part time. Those who work on a contract basis may spend a substantial amount of time traveling between facilities. As communication professionals, speech-language pathologists have the unique opportunity to: Work with other medical and rehabilitation professionals to care for patients. Provide services to a range of age groups, from newborns to adults. Counsel and educate patients and their families and caregivers. Use technology to evaluate and treat communication and related disorders and conduct research in communication sciences and disorders. Develop skills to serve as supervisors, mentors or administrators. Speech-language pathology requires attention to detail, specialized knowledge and skills and intense concentration. The emotional needs of clients and their families may also be demanding. Academic Requirements. If you are in high school, you should decide what your major will be. Some colleges and universities offer an undergraduate degree in communication sciences and disorders (CSD), but it’s not necessary. However, if you do not major in CSD, you may need to complete some prerequisites before applying to graduate school. Speech-language pathologists must: Earn a graduate degree in speech-language pathology from a program accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation. Complete a supervised postgraduate clinical fellowship. Get a passing score on a national examination. The American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) provides a listing of accredited schools offering a speech-language pathology program. Those individuals who have a graduate degree with major emphasis in speech-language pathology may become certified by the Council for Clinical Certification, which issues certificates of clinical competence for both audiology and speech-language pathology. In almost all states, a current license in audiology or speech-language pathology is also required to practice.

Speech-language therapy is the treatment for most kids with speech and/or language disorders. What Are Speech Disorders? A speech disorder refers to a problem with making sounds. Speech disorders include: Articulation disorders: These are problems with making sounds in syllables, or saying words incorrectly to the point that listeners can't understand what's being said. Fluency disorders: These include problems such as stuttering, in which the flow of speech is interrupted by unusual stops, partial-word repetitions ("b-b-boy"), or prolonging sounds and syllables (sssssnake). Resonance or voice disorders: These are problems with the pitch, volume, or quality of the voice that distract listeners from what's being said. These types of disorders may also cause pain or discomfort for a child when speaking. What Are Language Disorders? A language disorder refers to a problem understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Language disorders can be either receptive or expressive: Receptive disorders are problems with understanding or processing language. Expressive disorders are problems with putting words together, having a limited vocabulary, or being unable to use language in a socially appropriate way. Cognitive-communication disorders are problems with communication skills that involve memory, attention, perception, organization, regulation, and problem solving. What Are Feeding Disorders? Dysphagia/oral feeding disorders are disorders in the way someone eats or drinks. They include problems with chewing and swallowing, coughing, gagging, and refusing foods. Who Gives Speech-Language Therapy? Speech-language pathologists (SLPs), often called speech therapists, are educated in the study of human communication, its development, and its disorders. SLPs assess speech, language, cognitive-communication, and oral/feeding/swallowing skills. This lets them identify a problem and the best way to treat it. SLPs have: at least a master's degree state certification/licensure in the field a certificate of clinical competency from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) An ASHA-certified SLP has passed a national exam and completed an ASHA-accredited supervised clinical fellowship. Sometimes, speech assistants help give speech-language services. They usually have a 2-year associate's or 4-year bachelor's degree, and are supervised by an SLP. What Do SLPs Do? In speech-language therapy, an SLP works with a child one-on-one, in a small group, or in a classroom to overcome problems. Therapists use a variety of strategies, including: Language intervention activities: The SLP will interact with a child by playing and talking, using pictures, books, objects, or ongoing events to stimulate language development. The therapist may model correct vocabulary and grammar, and use repetition exercises to build language skills. Articulation therapy: Articulation, or sound production, exercises involve having the therapist model correct sounds and syllables in words and sentences for a child, often during play activities. The level of play is age-appropriate and related to the child's specific needs. The SLP will show the child how to make certain sounds, such as the "r" sound, and may show how to move the tongue to make specific sounds. Oral-motor/feeding and swallowing therapy: The SLP may use a variety of oral exercises — including facial massage and various tongue, lip, and jaw exercises — to strengthen the muscles of the mouth for eating, drinking, and swallowing. The SLP may also introduce different food textures and temperatures to increase a child's oral awareness during eating and swallowing. Why Do Some Kids Need Speech-Language Therapy? Kids might need speech-language therapy for many reasons, including: hearing impairments cognitive (intellectual, thinking) or other developmental delays weak oral muscles chronic hoarseness cleft lip or cleft palate autism motor planning problems articulation problems fluency disorders respiratory problems (breathing disorders) feeding and swallowing disorders traumatic brain injury Therapy should begin as soon as possible. Children who start therapy early (before they're 5 years old) tend to have better results than those who begin later. This doesn't mean that older kids won't do well in therapy. Their progress might be slower, though, because they have learned patterns that need to be changed. Who Do I Find a Speech-Language Therapist? To find a specialist, ask your child's doctor or teacher for a referral, check local directories online, or search on ASHA's website. State associations for speech-language pathology and audiology also keep listings of licensed and certified therapists. Your child's SLP should be licensed in your state and have experience working with kids and your child's specific disorder. How Can Parents Help? Parents are key to the success of a child's progress in speech or language therapy. Kids who finish the program quickest and with the longest-lasting results are those whose parents were involved. Ask the therapist what you can do. For instance, you can help your child do the at-home activities that the SLP suggests. This ensures the continued progress and carry-over of new skills. Overcoming a speech or language disorder can take time and effort. So it's important that all family members be patient and understanding with the child. Reviewed by: Julia K.

                            [body] => MA Program MA Program in Communicative Disorders with an Emphasis in Speech-Language Pathology.   Students who have completed (or will complete by the following Fall) an undergraduate degree in Communicative Disorders or the equivalent (i.e., prerequisite courses) are eligible to apply to the MA Program.  Students whose undergraduate degrees are in fields other than communication disorders and who have not completed the prerequisite coursework should apply to the Master’s Preparatory Certificate Program (see above).  The MA program in Communicative Disorders with an emphasis in Speech-Language Pathology requires the completion of a minimum of 59 semester units of graduate coursework and clinical practicum.  Additionally, most students choose to simultaneously pursue the Speech-Language Pathology Services Credential, which may add 3 additional semester units to the program.  Admission Requirements. The Department of Communication Disorders will only admit full-time students to the Master’s program. Students who have completed (or will complete by the following Fall) an undergraduate degree in Communicative Disorders or the equivalent (i.e., prerequisite courses) are eligible to apply to the Master’s program. Requirements for admission to the MA program in Speech-Language Pathology include the following: Completion of a baccalaureate degree in communicative disorders or equivalent (i.e. completion of the Master’s Preparatory Certificate Program or equivalent coursework at another University) A minimum 3.0 grade point average (GPA) in undergraduate coursework A minimum 3.0 GPA in undergraduate or prerequisite speech-language pathology and audiology coursework Admission is contingent upon submitting documentation of clinical observation hours approximately one month before the program begins.  Please see the FAQs section for more information. Achievement of minimum criteria does not guarantee admission to the MA program.  Admission to the MA program in Speech-Language Pathology is a competitive process whereby all applicants are evaluated by a committee composed of faculty. Prospective students are admitted, placed on a waiting list, or denied admission based on an evaluation of their grade point average in COMD coursework, grade point average in undergraduate coursework, GRE (waived for the Fall 2022 admission cycle) scores, letters of recommendation, letter of professional goals and intent, and an on-campus interview if selected for an interview. How to Apply. Admission to the MA Program in Communicative Disorders takes place once a year (Fall admission only).  Students wishing to apply to the MA Program must complete two separate applications.  You must complete both applications concurrently. 1. University Application through Cal State Apply An on-line application to the University must be submitted by the stated deadline via Cal State Apply (see Office of Admissions and Recruitment).  All students must submit the university application via Cal State Apply, including current Cal State LA undergraduate and Certificate students.  For questions regarding the university application, please contact the Office of Admissions and Recruitment at (323) 343-3901.  Tips In your profile, be sure to select “Graduate” as your Degree Goal. Please do not submit your letter of intent and GRE scores through Cal State Apply.  You will submit those documents with your department application using CSDCAS. Letter of intent (aka “Statement of Purpose”), type “N/A” in the textbox so that the system marks this item as complete.  Please note, if you are applying to other CSUs, be aware that they may have different requirements for the Statement of Purpose. GRE scores: Go to the Academic History section, go to “Standardized Tests”, and click on “I Am Not Adding Any Standardized Tests”.  NOTE: International students may have to submit other test scores.  Please contact Admissions for more details. You do not have to manually enter your coursework into the Cal State Apply application.  Therefore, under the Academic History section, go to “Transcript Entry”, and click “I Am Not Adding Any College Transcripts”.  It will state you opted not to add any college transcripts, which is the correct thing to do.  Official Hard Copy Transcripts: After you submit your online application, you will receive an email from Admissions with instructions on how to submit your transcripts.    Cal State Apply Fall 2022 Deadlines Application opens: October 1, 2021 Application deadline: January 14, 2022   2. Department Application through CSDCAS A separate on-line application must be submitted via CSDCAS (Communication Sciences and Disorders Centralized Application Service).  CSDCAS is administered by an independent third party provider and is not associated with Cal State LA.  It is a fee-based service that enables applicants to apply to multiple institutions.  The CSDCAS application is available at https://csdcas.liaisoncas.com/applicant-ux/ and requires: A letter of professional goals and intent Three letters of recommendation Official transcripts GRE scores (use Designated Institution [DI] Code 1747) Waived for the Fall 2022 admissions cycle CSDCAS Fall 2022 Deadlines Application opens: October 1, 2021 Application deadline: January 14, 2022   FAQs. Can I be a part-time student in the Master’s program? No, you must be a full-time student. Are classes offered online or in a more traditional, face-to-face setting? All of the courses in the Master’s program are offered face-to-face. What is the cost of this program? The tuition and fee amount per semester for graduate students during the 2021/2022 academic year is $4,088.24 for students taking 6.1 units or more.  Therefore, since this program is a full time program that lasts two years (including summers), the tuition and fee cost would be approximately $24,530 ($4,088 x 6 semesters).  However, please go to Student Financial Services for the most recent listing of Tuition & Fees for Graduate programs. Do you hold any information sessions or open houses? Currently, we do not have an information session or open house scheduled.  If we do schedule one, we will send you an email with the details.  Simply send us an email at [email protected] expressing your interest and we will add you to our open house contact list.  If you do not hear back from us by December 31st, it simply means we were unable to schedule an open house.  How do I know if I have taken enough prerequisites to apply to the program? Detailed transcript analysis occurs during the admissions process and cannot be done on a case-by-case basis prior to the application deadline.  However, if you graduated with a degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders or completed a prerequisite or leveling program, you most likely have enough prerequisites to apply to our Master’s program.  Missing one or two prerequisites will not make you ineligible to apply. In terms of the ASHA Basic Sciences prerequisites, if you are unsure if a particular course meets these requirements, please send an email to [email protected] including the course title and catalog description. Do I have to complete my clinical observation hours before applying to the program? Not exactly.  ASHA requires a minimum of 25 clinical observation hours prior to the start of clinical practicum.  Therefore you have some time between the application deadline (January) and the time you begin the master’s program (August) to finish your clinical observation hours.  You do not have to submit proof of clinical observation hours with your application. When do I submit documentation of my clinical observation hours? If you are admitted to the program, you will be asked to submit your clinical observation hours approximately one month before the program begins.  At that time, we expect to see that admitted students have completed at least 20 of the 25 hours required by ASHA.  I am having issues using the Cal State Apply website, who can I contact? If you have any technical problems with Cal State Apply, please visit Cal State Apply Applicant Help Center Is there a prompt and/ or page limit for the letter of intent? There is no prompt or page limit.  Students are welcomed to choose the most relevant information to include and while there is no page limit, we recommend that the letter be no longer than three pages. Must I enter all of the courses I have taken into CSDCAS and Cal State Apply? You must enter all of your coursework into CSDCAS but not into Cal State Apply.  Only enter coursework into Cal State Apply if you are currently enrolled in classes or planning to take classes before you begin this program. Do I have to submit transcripts to both CSDCAS and Cal State Apply? Yes. Do I send Cal State Apply transcripts to Admissions? After submitting your Cal State Apply application online, Admissions will contact you by email regarding your transcripts.  Please be on the lookout for that email and follow their instructions. I am a Cal State LA student; must I send Cal State LA transcripts as well? For CSDCAS, yes you must submit Cal State LA transcripts.  Please follow the instructions on CSDCAS. For Cal State Apply, you will not be asked to submit Cal State LA transcripts. How many students are accepted each year? Each annual cohort consists of 24 students. What is your acceptance rate? Based on the historical number of applicants in relation to the number of students we admit, our acceptance rate is less than 10%. GRE scores (waived for the Fall 2022 admissions cycle) Electronic or paper copy of results?  Please refer to CSDCAS instructions and FAQs. What do you consider competitive scores? GRE scores of those recently admitted ranged from 146 – 167 for Verbal, 143 – 159 for Quantitative, and 3.5 – 5.5 for Analytical. GPA What is a competitive GPA? GPAs of those recently admitted ranged from 3.63 – 4.0. What GPA is used in your admission decisions? The GPA that has the most weight is the GPA based on courses in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I am an out-of-state/country student. How can I participate in the interview portion of the admissions process? Out-of-state/country applicants who are invited to participate in an interview may request and arrange to do the interview via Zoom. What is the percentage of graduating MA students who go to work in schools and hospitals? Approximately 50% of graduates end up working in schools, and 50% in hospitals.   ConnectContact Us Media Social Media Hub Ways to Give ServicesCampus Map Campus Safety CARE Team Dining on Campus Jobs WellBeingU Parking & Transportation Student Health Center AdministrativeAccessibility Accreditation Annual Security Report Campus Safety Plan CSU System File Viewers Privacy Title IX Cal State LA on Facebook Cal State LA on Twitter Cal State LA on Instagram Cal State LA on LinkedIn Cal State LA on YouTube 5151 State University Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90032 (323) 343-3000© 2022 Trustees of the California State University Back to top

Essential Functions Essential Functions of a Speech-Language Pathologist The Department of Speech-Language Pathology at CUW is committed to developing future speech-language pathologists with established knowledge and skills competencies, as well as independent critical thinkers. In addition to having the knowledge and skills to practice as a speech-language pathologist, there are essential functions critical to successful treatment of individuals with communication and swallowing disorders. Students are therefore required to meet all essential functions needed with or without reasonable accommodations. Students who do not demonstrate essential functions at any point in their course of study, may be denied continuation in the program. In 2007, the Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) outlined the essential functions necessary for speech-language pathologists. The document may be found here.   The following are specific skills/essential functions needed by speech-language pathologists in order to provide service within the scope of practice.  Communication Skills: Speech-language pathologists must have strong communication skills, verbal and non-verbal. Students must demonstrate proficiency in spoken and written English in order to communicate effectively with clients/patients, caregivers, faculty, staff, peers, payer sources, and other health care professionals Physical Health: Speech-language pathology students must be in good physical health overall. A student with a chronic illness may not be able to have consistent attendance in class and/or clinic, limiting their ability to gain all the knowledge and skills required.  Students must possess the stamina for physical tasks. Must be able to sit/stand for several hours.  Students must demonstrate the stamina to perform classroom/clinical tasks for the amount of time in a typical workday. Observation Skills/Sensory abilities: Speech-language pathologists must have keen observation skills.  Students must be able to pick up on non-verbal communication and non-verbal cues (e.g., facial expressions, gestures, body language/orientation, joint attention, eye contact) Students need to be aware of the sensory needs of their clients/patients and the impact on communication. Students must therefore demonstrate functional hearing skills (aided or unaided) for speech frequencies. Students must have sufficient vision (with or without glasses) to participate in academic and clinical aspects of their education.  Students must be able to read materials such as medical records, IEP’s, and testing materials. Students must be able to complete visual assessment of the structure and function of oral-facial structures.  Students must have the visual capability to read and interpret videos fluoroscopic swallow studies. Intellectual/Cognitive skills: Students must have the cognitive skills to achieve competencies in required academic coursework. Students must demonstrate the ability to attend, memorize, organize, analyze, integrate and apply the information from coursework in a clinical setting. Students must have sufficient problem solving and critical thinking skills. Students must demonstrate the ability to use professional written language.  Motor skills: Students must have sufficient use of gross and fine motor skills to carry-out clinical service to clients/patients. This includes, but is not limited to: keyboarding, clinical, diagnostic, and lab equipment, and note-taking (in class and clinically during interview/case history). Students must demonstrate the ability to access operate and/or access transportation to all clinical and academic placements. Students must demonstrate the ability to transfer to and from the floor safely. Students must demonstrate the ability to move between areas (some maneuverability in small spaces), and use technology (e.g., AAC, computers, hearing aids, microphones). Behavior/Social Skills: Students must have good judgment and behave professionally. Students must have good emotional health, to allow for use of intellectual skills even in stressful situations.  Students must be reliable, mature and act responsibly. Students must demonstrate the ability to interact with faculty, preceptors, other students, other professionals, clients/patients, and caregivers in a variety of academic and clinical settings. Students must demonstrate understanding of the ASHA Code of Ethics and be able to apply it to difficult clinical situations. Students must have sufficient time management skills to complete all required academic and clinical coursework in a timely manner.  Students must demonstrate the ability to take in constructive criticism and self-evaluation and use it to enhance their skill development. Students must show respect for individuals of diverse backgrounds.

Clinic and Community The Speech-Language Pathology Department is dedicated to the mission of Concordia University Wisconsin and the School of Health Professions. It is focused on developing independent life-long learners with strong critical thinking and communication abilities. In addition, the Speech-Language Pathology program aims to prepare students for the opportunities and rigors of a vocation positively impacting communicatively challenged individuals and their families by providing outstanding academic/clinical education, as well as community outreach.  Service Learning During each semester of undergraduate and graduate study students engage in service to the community via service learning requirements embedded in coursework. Students provide service to LUMIN Schools, Milwaukee Public Schools, and more. Learn more about these service learning opportunities by visiting our Speech Language Pathology Clinic webpage.

Speech–language pathology is considered[by whom?] a "related health profession" or "allied health profession",[clarification needed] along with audiology, optometry, occupational therapy, rehabilitation psychology, physical therapy, behavior analysis and others. SLPs specialize in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of communication disorders (speech and language impairments), cognitive-communication disorders, voice disorders, and swallowing disorders. SLPs also play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorder (often in a team with pediatricians and psychologists).

Speech–language pathologists (SLPs) provide a wide range of services, mainly on an individual basis, but also as support for individuals, families, support groups, and providing information for the general public. SLPs work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, voice, fluency, and swallowing disorders in children and adults.[2] Speech services begin with initial screening for communication and swallowing disorders and continue with assessment and diagnosis, consultation for the provision of advice regarding management, intervention, and treatment, and providing counseling and other follow-up services for these disorders. Services are provided in the following areas: cognitive aspects of communication (e.g., attention, memory, problem-solving, executive functions). speech (phonation, articulation, fluency, resonance, and voice including aeromechanical components of respiration); language (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatic/social aspects of communication) including comprehension and expression in oral, written, graphic, and manual modalities; language processing; preliteracy and language-based literacy skills, phonological awareness. augmentative and alternative communication, for individuals with severe language and communication impairments. swallowing or other upper aerodigestive functions such as infant feeding and aeromechanical events (evaluation of esophageal function is for the purpose of referral to medical professionals); voice (hoarseness, dysphonia), poor vocal volume (hypophonia), abnormal (e.g., rough, breathy, strained) vocal quality. Research demonstrates voice therapy to be especially helpful with certain patient populations; individuals with Parkinson's Disease often develop voice issues as a result of their disease.[3] sensory awareness related to communication, swallowing, or other upper aerodigestive functions. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders result from a variety of causes, such as a stroke,[4] brain injury,[5] hearing loss,[6] developmental delay,[7] a cleft palate,[8] cerebral palsy,[9] or emotional issues.[10] A common misconception is that speech–language pathology is restricted to the treatment of articulation disorders (e.g. helping English-speaking individuals enunciate the traditionally difficult r) and/or the treatment of individuals who stutter but, in fact, speech–language pathology is concerned with a broad scope of speech, language, literacy, swallowing, and voice issues involved in communication,[11] some of which include: Word-finding and other semantic issues, either as a result of a specific language impairment (SLI) such as a language delay or as a secondary characteristic of a more general issue such as dementia. Social communication difficulties involving how people communicate or interact with others (pragmatics). Language impairments, including difficulties creating sentences that are grammatical (syntax) and modifying word meaning (morphology). Literacy impairments (reading and writing) related to the letter-to-sound relationship (phonics), the word-to-meaning relationship (semantics), and understanding the ideas presented in a text (reading comprehension). Voice difficulties, such as a raspy voice, a voice that is too soft, or other voice difficulties that negatively impact a person's social or professional performance. Cognitive impairments (e.g. attention, memory, executive function) to the extent that they interfere with communication. The components of speech production include: (i) phonation (producing sound), (ii) resonance, (iii) fluency, (iv) intonation, (iv) pitch variance; (v) voice (including aeromechanical components of respiration). The components of language include: (i) Phonology (manipulating sound according to the rules of a language); (ii) Morphology (understanding components of words and how they can modify meaning); (iii) Syntax (constructing sentences according to the grammatical rules of a target language), (iv) semantics (interpreting signs or symbols of communication such as words or signs to construct meaning); (v) Pragmatics (social aspects of communication).[12] Primary pediatric speech and language disorders include: (i) receptive and (ii) expressive language disorders, (iii) speech sound disorders, (iv) childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), (v) stuttering, and (vi) language-based learning disabilities.[13] Speech pathologists work with people of all ages.[14] Swallowing disorders include difficulties in any system of the swallowing process (i.e., oral, pharyngeal, esophageal), as well as functional dysphagia and feeding disorders. Swallowing disorders can occur at any age and can stem from multiple causes.[11] Multi-discipline collaboration[edit]. SLPs collaborate with other health care professionals, often working as part of a multidisciplinary team. They can provide information and referrals to audiologists, physicians, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, rehabilitation psychologists, dietitians, educators, behavior consultants (applied behavior analysis) and parents as dictated by the individual client's needs. For example, the treatment for patients with cleft lip and palate often requires multidisciplinary collaboration. Speech–language pathologists can be very beneficial to help resolve speech problems associated with cleft lip and palate. Research has indicated that children who receive early language intervention are less likely to develop compensatory error patterns later in life, although speech therapy outcomes are usually better when surgical treatment is performed earlier.[15] Another area of collaboration relates to auditory processing disorders,[16] where SLPs can collaborate in assessments and provide intervention where there is evidence of speech, language, and/or other cognitive-communication disorders. Working environments[edit]. SLPs work in a variety of clinical and educational settings. SLPs work in public and private hospitals, private practices, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), long-term acute care (LTAC) facilities, hospice,[17] and home healthcare. SLPs may also work as part of the support structure in the education system, working in both public and private schools, colleges, and universities.[18] Some SLPs also work in community health, providing services at prisons and young offenders' institutions or providing expert testimony in applicable court cases.[19] Following the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association's 2005 approval of the delivery of speech/language services via video conference or telepractice, SLPs in the United States have begun to use this service model.[20] Research[edit]. SLPs conduct research related to communication sciences and disorders, swallowing disorders, or other upper aerodigestive functions. Education and training[edit]. United States[edit]. In the United States, speech–language pathology is a Master's entry-level professional degree field. Clinicians must hold a master's degree in communicative disorders / speech–language pathology (e.g., MA, MS, or MEd) that is from a university that holds regional accreditation and from a communication sciences and disorders program that is accredited by the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association (ASHA), the profession's national governing body as well as individual state's governing board. Programs that offer the MEd degree are often housed within a university's college of education, but offer the same education and training as programs with a MA or MS degree. Beyond the master's degree, some SLPs may choose to earn a clinical doctorate in speech–language pathology (e.g., CScD or SLPD), or a doctoral degree that has a research and/or professional focus (e.g., PhD, or EdD). All degrees must be from a university that holds regional accreditation, but only the master's degree is accredited by the ASHA. All clinicians are required to complete 400 clinical hours (25 observation hours often completed during the undergraduate degree and 375 hours of graduate Clinical Practicum).[21] They must pass multiple comprehensive exams also called Knowledge and Skills Acquisition (KASA) exams. After all the above requirements have been met during the SLP's path to earning the graduate degree, SLPs must state licensure and national certification by: Passing the National Speech–Language Pathology Board examination (praxis). Successfully complete a clinical fellowship year (CFY) as a clinical fellow (CF) under the mentorship of a fully licensed mentor clinician. The CFY is no less than 36 weeks of full-time experience, totaling a minimum of 1260 hours. During the CFY, the CF cannot earn CFY hours unless they work more than 5 hours in a week and cannot earn any CFY hours beyond 35 hours in a week.[22] Receive American Speech–Language–Hearing Association (ASHA) Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) and full state licensure to practice, following successful completion of clinical fellowship year(CFY). States are responsible for licensure of clinicians and other professionals and, as far as the new SLP, these requirements are often similar to that of the CFY. Following the state licensure procedures and national certification requirements are usually done simultaneously. To maintain licensure, SLPs are required to participate in periodic earning of Continuing Educational Units (CEU). Continuing education and training obligations: Educate, supervise, and mentor future SLPs.[23] Participate in continuing education. Educate and provide in-service training to families, caregivers, and other professionals. Train, supervise, and manage speech–language pathology assistants (SLPA) and other support personnel. Educating and counseling individuals, families, co-workers, educators, and other persons in the community regarding acceptance, adaptation, and decisions about communication and swallowing.[24] Professional suffix: Credentials of a clinical fellow typically read as: MA, MS, or MEd, CF-SLP (e.g.: Jane Doe, MA, CF-SLP). Credentials of a fully licensed SLP commonly read as: MA, MS, or MEd, CCC-SLP (e.g.: Jane Doe, MA, CCC-SLP), indicating a practitioner's graduate degree and successful completion of the fellowship year/board exams to obtain the "three Cs" the Certification of Clinical Competence, in speech–language pathology. Methods of assessment[edit]. Further information: Speech and language assessment For many parents, the decision of whether or not to enroll students into school-based speech therapy or privately practiced therapy is challenging. Speech–language pathologists work as part of a team alongside teachers, counselors, social workers and parents when in a school setting.[25] Because school-based speech therapy is run under state guidelines and funds, the process of assessment and qualification is more strict. To qualify for in-school speech therapy, students must meet the state's criteria on language testing and speech standardization. Due to such requirements, some students may not be assessed in an efficient time frame or their needs may be undermined by criteria. For a private clinic, students are more likely to qualify for therapy because it is a paid service with more availability. Clients and patients[edit]. Speech–language pathologists work with clients and patients who may present with a wide range of issues. Infants and children[edit]. Infants with injuries due to complications at birth, feeding and swallowing difficulties, including dysphagia Children with mild, moderate or severe: Genetic disorders that adversely affect speech, language and/or cognitive development including cleft palate, Down syndrome, DiGeorge syndrome Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder[26][27] Autism spectrum disorders,[28] including Asperger syndrome[29] Developmental delay Feeding disorders, including oral motor deficits Cranial nerve damage Hearing loss Craniofacial anomalies that adversely affect speech, language and/or cognitive development Language delay Specific language impairment Specific difficulties in producing sounds, called articulation disorders, (including vocalic /r/ and lisps) Pediatric traumatic brain injury Developmental verbal dyspraxia Cleft palate[30] United States[edit]. In the US, some children are eligible to receive speech therapy services, including assessment and lessons through the public school system. If not, private therapy is readily available through personal lessons with a qualified speech–language pathologist or the growing field of telepractice.[31] Teleconferencing tools such as Skype are being used more commonly as a means to access remote locations in private therapy practice, such as in the geographically diverse south island of New Zealand.[32] More at-home or combination treatments have become readily available to address specific types of articulation disorders. The use of mobile applications in speech therapy is also growing as an avenue to bring treatment into the home. United Kingdom[edit]. In the UK, children are entitled to an assessment by local NHS speech- and language-therapy teams, usually after referral by health visitors or education settings, but parents are also entitled to request an assessment directly.[33] If treatment is appropriate, an educational plan will be drawn up. Speech therapists often play a role in multi-disciplinary teams when a child has speech delay or disorder as part of a wider health condition. The Children's Commissioner for England reported in June 2019 that there was a postcode lottery; £291.65 a year per head was spent on services in some areas, while the budget in some areas was £30.94 or less. In 2018, 193,971 children in English primary schools were on the special educational needs register needing speech-therapy services.[34] Children and adults[edit].

                            [body] => What Is a Speech Language Pathologist & What Do They Do? Speech-language pathology is a field of expertise concerned with the study and treatment of people who have speech, language, and swallowing difficulties. Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) work with people of all ages to diagnose and treat communication conditions and disorders. What Is a Speech-Language Pathologist? Speech-language pathologists, also called “speech therapists,” work with patients on a broad range of physical and cognitive communication disorders: issues with articulation, stuttering, word finding, semantics, syntax, phonics, vocalization, and swallowing. These disorders have a variety of causes, such as autism, stroke, brain injury, hearing loss, developmental delay, a cleft palate, and psychological issues, among others. SLPs are typically part of a rehabilitation team that can include physical therapists, occupational therapists, audiologists, and psychologists. SLPs work in educational and clinical settings such as: Hospitals Physicians’ offices Preschools, K–12 schools*, and colleges/universities Private clinics Nursing homes Rehabilitation centers Research laboratories What Disorders Do Speech Pathologists Treat? Speech-language pathologists treat people of all ages, from toddlers to senior citizens. They’re trained to help clients with problems in three key areas: speech, language, and related disorders. Speech Issues. SLPs help clients work on speech-related issues such as the following: Fluency: “Fluency” refers to how sounds, syllables, words, and phrases flow together when speaking quickly. Fluency disorders include cluttering (too-rapid speech with an odd rhythm) and stuttering (involuntary pauses and repetition of sounds). Voice: Voice difficulties include hoarseness—which is often caused by nodules or polyps on the vocal folds—and abnormal pitch. Articulation: Articulation disorders involve issues such as substitution of one sound for another, slurring of speech, or indistinct speech. Language Problems. Speech-language pathologists treat language disorders such as the following: Aphasia: Typically caused by stroke or head trauma, aphasia is an inability to understand or produce language because of damage to certain areas of the brain. Language-based learning disabilities: These neurological differences affect skills such as listening, reasoning, speaking, reading, and writing. Pragmatics: SLPs work with people who have difficulty understanding social cues and communication rules, such as turn-taking. Related Disorders. SLPs usually treat the following related disorders in conjunction with healthcare team members, such as gastroenterologists and audiologists. Swallowing: Swallowing and feeding are also issues addressed by SLPs. Referred to as dysphagia, a swallowing disorder can have consequences, such as poor nutrition and unhealthy weight loss, and occurs both in children and adults. Hearing loss: SLPs treat people with hearing loss to help them develop lip-reading skills and other alternative forms of communication. Job Responsibilities. Due to the varying nature of the job, speech-language pathologists need to be good at working with all types of clients and situations. A skilled speech-language pathologist is caring, resourceful, and able to develop individualized plans tailored to each patient’s needs. Some primary job responsibilities of speech-language pathologists include: Perform patient screenings to detect and diagnose speech-related disorders. Diagnose and treat speech, language, and swallowing disorders. Design tailored treatment plans for the unique needs of each patient. Help patients develop speech skills. Train and educate family members or caregivers on how to best help with the patient’s condition. Some SLPs employ speech-language pathology assistants to help them balance the workload. What Education Is Required to Become a Speech Pathologist? To become a speech-language pathologist, you must first earn your bachelor’s degree in a related field of study, or otherwise complete leveling coursework if your bachelor’s degree is in another area. Aspiring SLPs then complete a specialized graduate program, such as a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology, which typically takes two years. After earning their degree, graduates usually complete a clinical fellowship year (CFY). SLPs often must apply for a temporary state license to practice during this fellowship. Most clinical fellowships last for 36 weeks, for a minimum of 35 hours per week. Additionally, in some states, aspiring speech-language pathologists must complete the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP), administered through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). The CCC-SLP is considered the gold-standard credential in the field. Once their education is complete, candidates must pass the Subject Assessment in Speech-Language Pathology to earn state licensure, among other requirements, depending on the state. If the educational program is in Candidate Accreditation status, graduates often need to obtain their CCC in order to apply to states to have their status recognized in the first place. Most students take the exam during their clinical fellowship year. What Is the Average Salary of a Speech Pathologist? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary of a speech-language pathologist was $77,510 in 2018. However, salaries for SLPs vary significantly depending on work experience, educational level, and job setting. ASHA’s 2019 Annual Salary Report states that the median salary was $74,000 for SLP clinical service providers and $100,000 for SLP administrators or supervisors. The West was the U.S. region with the highest median salary, $85,000. SLPs with 20 or more years of experience received a median salary of $100,000. The projected growth for SLP jobs is 27% from 2018 to 2028, which is much higher than the national average of 5%. With the rising demand for an estimated 41,900 new speech-language pathologists in the next ten years, it’s clear that a career in speech-language pathology is an excellent choice. Due to the aging population, rising school enrollment, and increasing bilingualism in the United States, speech-language pathology is an in-demand medical profession with an extremely positive future job outlook. With opportunities to work in professional environments such as universities, hospitals, and research laboratories, speech-language pathologists have a wide variety of career options to choose from. The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) offers a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP). Designed for working students, the MS-SLP is an online program with four required on-campus residencies on either the USAHS Austin or Dallas campus. The program offers two intakes per year, in January and September. Prepare to make a difference in the lives of clients across the lifespan with a meaningful career in speech therapy!
