NY - Classes for TSSLD Certification

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I'm currently in a grad program in NYC that does not offer classes required for the TSSLD. I want to be open to working in schools and thus have been looking up where I can take these education courses to qualify for the certification. From my research, I came across this website via the NYS Education Department which lists all the pathways that lead to getting the initial certification for the TSSLD: http://eservices.nysed.gov/teach/certhelp/CertRequirementHelp.do

I was surprised to find that the last pathway, titled "Pathway: NYS Professional License", does not require any grad level classes at all. It only requires an SLP license along with a few workshops to be completed.  

Is this accurate? I always heard that you need some specific education courses (both undergrad and grad) to qualify for the TSSLD. But of course if the requirements changed, that's infinitely better as I'd save some time and money from not having to take more courses. Would appreciate any info regarding this. Thanks!

Hello. So I recently talked to an SLP who transferred her license from MA to NY. After receiving her NY license she applied for a TSSLD (which took 4-6 weeks). She said the classes are offered all over and cost $50-$150 a class. They are typically 4-6 hours in one sitting. She said she completed 4 classes which cost her $500 total. I have no idea if this answers your question, but hopefully, it helps a little. What grad program are you in that doesn't offer the TSSLD?
