Hello, I wanted to ask a question about receiving your speech therapist assistant license in TX. I am currently pursuing a second bachelors degree in communication disorders. I would like to apply for my slpa license, I have all the classes, I just do not know how to get the 25 observation/ 25 clinical instructional hours. Do I call around to speech clinics? Or can I do it at a school? Any insight would be very helpful. Thank you.
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!
