  1. Hey guys! So I just finished applying to SLP graduate schools and was planning on getting certified as an SLPA this semester since I have my 25 observation hours completed. I was curious if anyone on here has experience working as an SLPA while also attending SLP grad school full-time? I'm nervous that it may be too much to manage. Any advice would be appreciated!
  2. I am starting an internship program soon that prepares me to be an SLPA. It’ll be my first time doing real hands on work within the field. I will be doing it at a pediatric therapy clinic and while I’m excited, I am also very nervous as I know I will be planning sessions, writing SOAP notes, collecting data, etc. It’ll be my first time working with clients and I’m worried I won’t know what the heck I’m doing. I’ve never planned therapy before or managed a caseload and every child is so different. Any tips would be much appreciated!
  3. Hi everyone! I'm an undergraduate SLP student and I am about to complete my first semester at a cal state since I'm a community college transfer student. I feel behind because I did not put in the effort to meet with professors all semester and get to know them. I participate and ask questions in class every once and a while, but I'm simply just another student. However, I need a faculty member for programs and scholarships to be a recommender by late January. How should I approach them without being too pushy? I understand it's very late & I should have been putting in the effort. Any tips?
  4. Anyone know of high acceptance rate masters programs for Speech? I have a low GRE and am looking to relate with someone and get some hope. I am an SLPA right now. Does anyone know of grad schools they got into with lower GRE scores? Or anyone that was an SLPA and it helped you get in? THANK YOU! Quote
  5. Hi, I was rejected my first round applying to grad for Speech and am re applying. I am an SLPA have loved this experience....also love it because I am hoping it will STAND OUT when I re apply right now. Does anyone have any experience with this? I have applied to all the schools in Georgia and am wondering if anyone was an SLPA with low GRE scores and was accepted second round to ANY school? Will being an SLPA help me any? Any advice, etc, will HELP!! Thank you!!
  6. Hello, I have a low GPA from my first BA (2.5). Terrible, I know...just discovered I had undiagonsed ADHD for most of my life. Anyway, I was going to go the 2ND BA route and try to get straight As. I have decided against it since I feel it'll be impossible to get into any schools in SoCal with such a horrible GPA. Not to mention the cost. I do not have the option of relocating because I am a stay at home Mom and we recently bought a house here. Instead, I've decided to pursue the SLPA route at Santa Ana College. Am I giving up too easily? Or am I jus being realistic? Will my SLPA AA GPA be counted into my last 60 credits? I'm 31 years old and I eventually do want to apply to masters program if I end up loving Speech Pathology. I've read about the NAU summer only track for SLP-As which would be ideal for me. Since, I have family in the area and it's only 8 weeks long I would be able to take my kids with me. Has anyone completed the NAU summer only track? If so, what were your stats? GRE/GPA What did you think of the program? SLPA-S...how difficult is it to got a job in the CA school district? Do they pay well? If you have read this far, THANK YOU! I know I have a ton of questions but I just want to weigh my options.
  7. One of my mentors informed me that all I needed was a Bachelors Degree to work in schools (they only have it labeled as SLP but min requirement is bachelor's), similar to a SLPA job. Any fellow Idahoans out there that have been through this process or are considering this? I'm curious to know how it works and what it's like. Thanks for the help
  8. Hi All! I'm a senior about to graduate in my undergrad in Exercise Science however I want to go into SLP! I've been thinking about it for quite some time but I'm getting anxious as graduation comes because I know I am going to have to start to figure out how exactly i'm going to go about this - and if it's even realistic! Was anyone in this position.. where their undergrad was not in communication disorders but they still wanted to do SLP? I was told I should get a second BS, which would be such a pain, but I was also told I should just take the pre reqs and then apply .... but how would I get in? I would be up against communication disorder students! I work as a therapy aide right now at a rehabilitation hospital so I do help the SLP's and work with their patients to an extent. That's it for experience though. Should I do an SLPA program and work for a bit to broaden my chances to get into grad school??? Help!
  9. Hi, I am having difficulty making a decision about graduate school. I graduated with a bachelor's in education but I would love to pursue a career as a Speech Language Pathologist. Because my degree is in something other than SLP, I am an out-of-field leveling student. Should I go back and get an associate's degree in SLPA and THEN pursue SLP at a graduate program? Or would I have to retake classes to get a bachelor's after the associate and then apply for the master's program? Or could I get my associate in SLPA and then go straight to a grad program since I already have a bachelor's? or would it make more sense to go ahead and take leveling courses and then apply to grad school for SLP and not go back and get an associate's degree in SLPA? I'm so sorry if this is confusing. I was accepted to take leveling courses at UNT in Denton but I would not be able to get financial aid and that's another big reason why I feel like I should get an associate and then go to grad school. Although would I be able to receive financial aid in getting an associate's after I have already received a bachelor's? Thank you in advance. I am also in Texas. I essentially would like to end up with an SLP license. How long would it take if I went back and got my associates.
  10. Hi, I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration this past June 2016 and am considering a career in Speech Pathology after finding out more about it by my sister in law who is a SLPA. It is something I am seriously considering but there are also limitations because I do not know where to start. I live in Orange County and would be commuting to school so the only schools that interested me were Cal State LA, Cal State Fullerton and Cal State Dominguez Hills. I know Chapman would be way too expensive since it is a private school. I just do not know which route to take since it there is an overload of information. I just finished applying to CSULA and CSUF for Fall 2017. I am looking to volunteer next year with something speech related but just need advice on what the best route to take is. Thanks
  11. Long story short: SLPA. finished undergrad last may 2015. attempting to apply and hopefully get into one next year. I am stumped with writing letters of intent, and honestly, i really was trying to avoid looking at others' so that my letters wouldn't be affected by what I have read. However, I am stuck. I would very much appreciate it if any of you could let me take a peek at your letters of intent, of course only if you don't mind. Or any tips at all that has helped you get into grad school. also, I am having a bit of a problem with letters of recommendation because I feel like I did not make much of a connection with professors because I was the type to try and solve a question on my own, or through google, because I had to travel 1 hour or more just to get home.. so I usually tried to avoid office hours, if I could help it.. If you were ever in the similar position, what did you do? or were there other people that you were able to ask, and still got into grad school? Any tips are very very very much appreciated!!
  12. Hey guys, I was wondering if I could get some advice! I'm a resident of California, USA and I've just graduated with a B.A. in Psychology. Although I truly enjoy psychology as a subject, I know I don't necessarily want to become a "psychologist"per se. A professor of mine told me about Speech Therapy/ Speech Language Pathology before graduation, and the topic really intrigued me. After some research, I think I can see myself working in a school setting with young kids and/or teenagers! The problem is; however, in CA there are only two schools that have an SLP program (within my means of travel), and both require a degree in Communicative Disorders. There is a post-bacc program available that would need 2 years of completion before I can apply to the 3-5 year M.A. in Communicative Disorders program that leads into becoming an SLP. I joined this forum site basically to gauge anyone's opinion or advice--do you think it's worth it to endure the post-bacc; financially and time-wise? Should I maybe try for SLPA instead? Or do you know of any other fields that can combine therapy/education/health science the way speech therapy does without having to work in a hospital setting?
  13. long story short: I have just finished my bachelor's last fall from CSUF. I also just took a SLPA course from Loma Linda and currently waiting on my license to be able to work as a SLPA. I plan on applying for grad school for next fall (or summer, if i can get into schools with a part-time track). here are some schools I'm thinking of applying to: University of Iowa University of Washington Portland State University Northern Arizona University University of the Pacific If any of you have been a SLPA prior to applying for grad school and have gotten into any of these schools, I would appreciate your input. My #1 concern are recommendation letters. I haven't made much "connections" with the professors during undergrad, I made a few but they were my general ed professors. It's obviously a bit too late for me to try and get to know them because I am done with undergrad. Where did you get your recommendations from? are SLP supervisors good to get those letters from? Also, definitely need help in study tips for the GRE, organizing grad applications, and how to do the statement of purpose. HELPPPP. these are the only questions I could think of for now. LOL. but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! thank you!!
  14. I'm about to finish my bachelors in speech and hearing science (concentration in slp) at the University of Illinois. I decided to take a gap year instead of going straight to grad school for slp and wanted to get licensed to be an SLPA so i could work as one during my gap year. I just read somewhere that in Illinois you can only get certified as an SLPA if you complete an associates degree program with the certification. That makes no sense to me. If I have a bachelor's degree, I feel like I should be able to obtain certification and work as an assistant. Does anyone have any knowledge on this situation? Help me!
  15. Hello everyone! As a recent graduate (from California) with a Bachelor's in Speech-Language Pathology, I have decided to take a year or two off to gather some experience and build up my confidence in the field before applying to graduate school. My goal is to become a certified SLP-A but I'm a bit confused about how to meet the minimum qualifications. I have a B.S., however, I do not have all of the 100 supervised hours required. What are my options in order to complete the 100 supervised hours? Do I have to enroll in a program? Or where/who should I turn to? Thanks so much! Feel free to correct me if I put out any wrong information. I may have misunderstood the ASHA requirements.
