My BA is in linguistics, so I'm trying to gain information on what kind of prerequisites I need in order to apply to a master's program in speech language pathology. Each school's individual requirements are pretty straightforward but, so far, every school has given me a different answer as to what exactly the ASHA requirements are. In terms of the general prerequisites (social science, statistics, sciences, etc) I'm good to go. However in terms of the SPA courses, some schools are telling me that Intro to Hearing Sciences (or similar) is an ASHA requirement but some schools are telling me that I don't need it, which obviously doesn't make sense because if it's an ASHA requirement, shouldn't all schools require it? Besides coursework, are there any other requirements besides 25 hours of clinical observation? I'm trying to figure out everything on my own and since every program is giving me different answers as to what is and is not required, I'm afraid I will find out too late that I am missing something and not have enough time to complete it before the program starts. (I am aiming for an August 2021 start date and am starting my prerequisite coursework this fall) I would so appreciate any information or tips, and to speak with someone who went into SLP from an out-of-field BA. Thanks!
Hi! I live in Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas. I am trying to gain as many observation hours as I can before I submit an OT application to TWU. I only have 20 hours from Children's right now. One hospital in Lewisville do not accept observers. Where have you guys contacted for observations? Is it common to find many clinics reject observers? Thanks!
