My girlfriend has told me since we met 3 years ago that she wants to be a speech pathologist. She hasn't done any college for it yet. I was just wondering what kind of entry level job could she get into that would prepare her or help her to be a speech pathologist later?
I'm looking in to majoring in Speech Pathology when I start college next fall. I've heard from many people that they make good money and the job outlook is excellent. What is the average salary of a speech pathologist? Also, does the salary vary depending on what kind of speech pathologist you are (like a clinical, pediatric, etc?) Thanks!
I am going to change my major to become a speech pathologist, and I was wondering if you learn the techniques used to treat people with speech problems, swallowing disorders... etc. How do you retain all that information and apply it in your career? I am afraid I will get a job as a speech pathologist and not be able to help the patient.
I want to at least get linguistics in as a major... can I do that if I am going to be speech pathologist?
What other jobs could i do with this? what other majors can you become a speech pathologist with?
I am trying to decide whether I want to go into Speech Pathology or become a high school French teacher.
French is definately my passion but I live in California so I worry about jobs. Speech pathologists make more money but I love French.
Can't decide. Advice?
I live in Washington State. I have an Associate's Degree from local community college but not enough. Should I major in Social Services (To become a social worker) or major in Speech and Hearing Sciences (To become a Speech Pathologist)? Both are interesting but in terms of the current and future job market, which will have a better salary and career potential? Please advise, I want to make the most of the next 2-4 years.
I see there are many speech language pathologist openings in my area, which can deal with elementary, middle, and high school.
Is it a rewarding job? I'm thinking about currently majoring in English, could I do something with that?
I realized that I really want to be a speech pathologist but i have a bad nasal voice and might need a velopharygeal surgery, but i cannot afford the surgery, so I was wondering if having a nasal voice limit my dream of being a speech pathologist?
I've just noticed quite a few professors and other person's with good paying jobs with nose piercings. I wonder if it's just becoming the equivalent of having ears pierced. I would really like to pierce my nose but don't want to have it affect my future career (Im studying to become a speech pathologist) or have any bad scars if I have to take it out.
It is necessary to have a Master's degree to be a practicing Speech Language Pathologist, although, the median salary is nearly $40,000, that's about the same as plumber or a bailiff. I understand it should be about passion over salary but in my opinion, SLP's are hugely underpaid.
I've been trying to find some idea of a career I want for a long time. I love things in all the humanities, but there isn't really anything in that field that would give me a safe-paying job, and I don't want to be a teacher. I recently started looking at speech therapists and SLPs, but I want to know it that's really a downright medical job. I don't do to well with blood or talking about the human body, it makes me queasy. Is that something I would need to get over if I decided to become a speech-language pathologist?
I am in college now and struggling with what to major in. I really love helping people and working with children as well. I am torn between becoming a teacher or a speech language pathologist. Is there a greater demand for teachers of speech language pathologists in Massachusetts? Which one makes a better salary? Anything helps, thanks!
Hello, I'm 18 and I attend college full time. I plan to get a part time job and begin saving portions of my check in order to create a large amount to put down on a house when I graduate. I'm considering becoming a Speech pathologist, If this career makes $70,000 a year, what is the highest house I can purchase and still maintain paying the mortgage? I always wanted a two-story house with a spiral staircase :-)
I'm looking in particular for the average annual income of a speech pathologist, but a site that has lots of listings would do nicely.
I have heard that the 4 year degree course for Speech Pathology is not for the faint at heart. How hard is it really? Would you recommend doing it? I know that they can make a good bit of money once you graduate and start working as a speech pathologist.
So the decision is a speech pathologist I think. But I feel like that is a safe job, like its just going to be the same old same old. I would love to be a writer, music producer, fashion or music events planner,or english teacher. But it's just that most of the those arent very promising that I can actually go anywhere, and make good money. It's just idk how to choose what to do
I am a Speech Pathologist that has worked in the Field for more than 17 years and am wanting to try a new career but do not want to go back to school for another degree. Any suggestions on what career I could pursue with a MA in Speech/Language Pathology?
I want to teach American Sign Language more than anything. My older sister was saying you'd have to at least be an audiologist/speech pathologist before you could get a teaching job. How should I go about it? Btw, I live in Ohio.
Would that help me with my future career if I want to have a career as a speech pathologist?
