  1. Thread for those interested in gaining work experience working as an assistant before applying to grad school. Advice/tips/info/questions/etc. So that all of the most relevant information is easy to find, I've compiled some resources for you all. I'll add to it over time as people respond: ASHA's state-by-state licensing/certification requirements. (click your state, then support personnel to figure out what is required for certification in your state. Keep in mind, this is only updated annually so your state's regulations might have changed) Important to note: State licensure takes precedence, you can hold ASHA's C-SLPA and still be unable to practice in your state if you have not met the state's requirements. On the other end of the spectrum, you might be able to practice without the rigorous requirements of the C-SLPA certification if your state does not yet require it. (Some states only require a high school diploma.) This is because state laws and regulations govern the schools and medical facilities where you'd be working. That being said, it is likely that states will align themselves with the new ASHA certification in the near future, but legislating these changes and adding them to state budgets will take time. Have any states already moved to require ASHA certification (C-SLPA)? ASHA's certification program requirements (C-SLPA): ---again, this is voluntary unless your state (or job) requires it Completion of a 1-hour of ethics course Completion of a 1-hour course in universal safety precautions Completion of a 1-hour patient confidentiality training course Clinical field work: A minimum of 100 hours (observation hours cannot be used), to include 80 hours of direct patient/client/student services under the supervision of an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist (SLP) and 20 hours of indirect patient/client/student services under the supervision of an ASHA-certified SLP One of the following education requirements: 2 year SLPA program OR 4 year CSD undergraduate OR other Bachelor's degree along with Introductory or overview course in communication disorders, Phonetics, Speech sound disorders, Language development, Language disorders, Anatomy and physiology of speech and hearing mechanisms, and ASHA’s online SLPA education modules Completion of the exam Apply here FAQs (this is really helpful info) If, for example, you have a Bachelor's degree in something other than SLPH but you've taken the required courses (looking at you, out-of-majors taking levelling courses), how on earth are you supposed to come up with 100 hours of clinical/fieldwork? Why offer it as an option if it's impossible? Looking for people to commiserate, mostly, but if you have advice that would be great. How have you all found positions, other than searching on glassdoor or linkedin? In Kansas, there's a workaround where you only have to have a high-school diploma to be a Speech-Language Para-professional in schools! Relevant work experience without the impossible hurdles to jump through!?!?! I was floored when I figured this out, I didn't know paras could specialize. Is this true in your state?
  2. I know this is a semi-frequent topic in this forum, but I am looking into back-up options pretty frequently as decisions are coming out. I have my bachelor's in CDIS, and I have been working on a limited license in speech path (through the department of education in my state, Minnesota) Has anyone found a way to get 100 hours, (50 of which are directly supervised) without paying $$$$ to retake classes you already took in undergrad just to get the practicum hours offered in a certificate or AA program for SLPA?
  3. Hi all! If you know motivated research assistants who might be interested in a full-time lab manager position at the University of Michigan (to start in summer), please forward them this link: http://careers.umich.edu/job_detail/137845/research_technician_associate I've worked with Arnold and Josh for two years as lab manager and have absolutely LOVED it, so if applicants have any specific questions about the position, they are most definitely welcome to email me at yuchingg@umich.edu.
  4. Since quite a few people have been admitted to MIT MechE S.M. for Fall 2012, it is probably time to open a thread. I am somewhat concerned about the funding situation. It would be great if someone has answers to one or more of the questions below. Has anyone gotten any guaranteed funding yet? When do we know? When are you planning on starting to contact the professors? Typically, what percentage of S.M. admits get funding?
