Celebrating Better Speech and Hearing Month

May is “Better Speech and Hearing Month,” a month dedicated to raising awareness about communication disorders and the professionals who treat them. In order to work in most schools, an SLP must obtain a “Speech-Language Pathologist” certificate which requires a master’s degree and approximately 300 clinical hours in diagnostics and interventions. The masters program for Speech-Language Pathology is unique in that it combines science, education, medicine, and psychology.

In the schools, a speech language pathologist targets the following areas Articulation therapy, Voice therapy, Stuttering therapy, Language therapy, Child Study Team, Group language lessons, Sign language programs, Speech reading programs, Speech/language evaluations and Hearing screenings. Our main goal is to help our students become successful communicators in an educational setting.
