COMMUNICATION AND LEARNING DISORDERS
Speech-language pathologists and audiologists care about people and are dedicated to the idea of providing the best possible assessment and treatment of individuals with communication disorders. Speech-language pathologists work in schools, hospitals, nursing homes, birth-to-three programs, rehabilitation centers, community clinics and many other settings serving individuals with communication disorders. Students who have completed their bachelor’s degree may work as a licensed speech-language pathologist assistant in most of these settings under the direction and guidance of a master’s level and state licensed speech-language pathologist if they are able to obtain the required practicum experience through their employer.
