Speech-Language Pathologist Resume
What does a Speech-Language Pathologist do?
Speech-language pathologists work with patients who can't make speech sounds or can't express them clearly; those having speech fluency and rhythm issues, for instance stuttering; patients with voice disorders, for example unsuitable pitch or harsh tone; those with issues producing and understanding language; those who desire to develop their communication abilities by tailoring their accent; and those with cognitive communication impairments, for example problem-solving, memory, and attention disorders. In addition, they work with patients having swallowing problems.
What are the requirements for becoming a speech-language pathologist?
The main requirement for these professionals is having a Master's degree. The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association accredits some of the programs offered by Universities, so completing one of these will bring further chances of getting hired. While this is not mandatory, the most important need for speech-language pathologists is being National or State licensed in this occupation also by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
According to this organization, in 2009, a number of 240 academic facilities offered accredited programs, Master's degrees and Doctorates.
As these pathologists achieve knowledge and experience in a specialized field of this career, they become specialists in a particular range of age, such as adolescents or adults, or certain diseases, such as learning issues or Aphasia. Consequentially, they can obtain recognition in a certain area of expertise. Another path is becoming mentors or supervisor for future to be speech-language pathologists or choosing an administrative position in a clinical environment.
