I'm currently a freshman liberal studies major who was interested in teaching special ed. However, I've been thinking of switching to communication disorders and becoming a speech therapist or audiologist. I just want a decent paying job in the future, anything above 50,000 a year. Help! Advice please.
How do you become a special education speech therapist? Is there specific schools for this field of work and where are they in Los Angeles, CA, San Franscioc, CA, or Las Vegas, Nevada?
Would like to know what background a Speech Therapist might have and what qualifications they need. My own background is that of a Teaching Assistant in a primary school working with special education needs children, what would I need to do to build on that?
Is it hard to find a job as a Speech Therapist?
Do speech therapists make good money?
Is it really hard to be a speech therapist? What kind of classes? how many years?
If you are a speech therapist living in NYC, what do you have to do to obtain a job and flat in England?
I'm thinking about applying to masters programs in occupational therapy and speech therapy. I was just wondering which one is the better career when it comes to job satisfaction, salaries, and career outlook. Would it be easier to find a job in a rural area as an occupational therapist or a speech therapist?
At the moment im in high school and getting C & B in most of my subjects and when i leave school i want to become a speech language therapist and am wondering what grades i need to become one? also do you need to be really clever?
how long would it take to become one?
is it good pay etc.
oh and is it a good job?
Like some people become aromatherapists or speech therapists - skills you can teach on your own or when you want. meaning, you don't have to go to an office to work! any ideas? and not necessarily health-related jobs like the ones I mentioned.
My husband and I will be moving to Florida in the near future. (Not sure what part of Florida) I have been a speech therapist in a school district in NY for 30 years. Will I be able to find a similar job in Florida?
Jobs in the social service sector includes positions such as Special Education Teacher, Physiotherapist, Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapists, Social Worker, Counsellor, etc... what kinda tagline wld really draw people into this sector. Any ideas?
Hello :) So i am very much having trouble deciding what carrer i should go into and i'm cutting it kinda close. So the speech therapist probably has more job security but the interior design is my passion so i really need help!!!
Thank you :)
I originally wanted to become a kindergarten teacher, but a job in speech therapy has recently caught my attention.
If you're a speech therapist, I was wondering if there was any advice you can give?
Also, do you consider this amount as very, very good pay. I love to help people and that is why I think I would like this career. I also want a career that will satisfy my financial needs and wants. I can tell you for sure I want a really, really good super paying job. Also what do you all think about Physical and speech therapists' pay?
It was posted on Yahoo careers last week but I did not write it down. There is an occupation that is supposed to be big in the coming years. It is like a speech therapist but isnt exactly. Anyone read that article or know what job it is?
In a few years time I will be an MA qualified and licensed Speech and Language Therapist - my dream is to go to NY state, or specifically NYC to get a job in a private centre, or public hospital.
What is the process I would have to go through to - find a job; get a visa; move over there. And what is the likelihood of being able to find a workplace which will sponsor me to come over, as opposed to hiring a 'home grown' language therapist?
I can offer a great hourly rate with groups of two in local charter schools. Basically the job is a peach. The best part is that Sarasota is beautiful, cultural and near the beach. Right now I'd like someone to work in the schools so that I can take care of the office. But if they wanted to learn the business, the summer would be a perfect time. I'd like to find someone who could eventually take over. How do I get there from here on a small advertising budget in competition with the bigger companies when there is a shortage of Speech Therapists nationwide. I am not big enough to offer benefits other than continuing education. I don't want to waste money with ads in non-productive places.
I'm graduating from high school in the spring. I really love psychology. I'm just afraid I wouldn't be able to find a job. If I had my masters degree in speech pathology/communication disorders/whatever, I probably wouldn't have any trouble finding a job as a speech therapist.
However, I also read that a lot of psychology majors use their degree to help them become speech therapists. So, I'm wondering if I should follow my passion and use speech pathology as a back-up if psychology doesn't work out.
1. They could obviously be video game designers.
2. They could be musicians or be artists if they don't have impaired Motor skills.
3. They could be our nerdy mathematicians.
4. They could be our scientists.
5. They could obviously be Taxi Cab Drivers if they can at least say hello to people.
6. If they could learn to show emotions, then they could be Hollywood actors or actresses if the cameras don't cause anxiety for them (this could be a huge concern for some).
7. There are more and more Aspie Psychologists nowadays.
8. I don't know if it's illegal for them to do this, but some could be exceptional Police officers.
9. If they can learn to be obsessed with playing a sport and also learn how to come around the poor motor coordination, then they could be athletes.
10. Some could be doctors if they can build empathy skills.
11. They could become good security guards.
12. Movie Critics
13. Song Writers
14. Since some have obsessions with computers, more should consider being producers in Hollywood.
15. Customer Service since it doesn't require them to read facial expressions.
18. Cashiers since they are exceptional at math.
19. Teachers since they have obsessions with certain subjects.
22. Models if their Autism doesn't impair their looks.
24. Waiters or waitresses.

28. Principials are a reccomendation, although they may have trouble with ruling with an iron fist.
29. Speech therapists
30. News reporters
31. Poets if they can express their emotions.
33. Home designers
35. Car salesmen
36. Racers since they are all about memorizing terms, and a lot of them would build the sickest vehicles out there.
What they should not do or be:
1. Join the Armed Forces.
2. Bloggers since a lot of them have limited speech patterns.
3. Sports Announcers since they might not be able to talk for long periods of time, and it generally requires a lot of social interaction.

8. Authors if they can at least understand English.
9. Home builders since it doesn't require much communication.
10. Construction workers.
11. Musicians since singing isn't a requirement.
Jobs that they should never do:
1. Any job that requires verbal communication.
Now there's the Low Functioning Autism:
1. They could be actors or actresses still if they can be verbal, but memorization could be a huge concern.
2. Vetrinarians if they have the mental capacity to do so.
6. If they are verbal, they can read books to older people or younger people in a library or in a senior center.
8. Cashiers if they have the mental capacity to do so.
9. Hosts in restaurants since it's all about repetitive routines (if they are verbal), although politeness and hand writing could be a big concern.
10. Food critics if they can develop a decent vocabulary.
What do you think of my list? You can add your own if you would like.
I am currently an Elem Ed. major. I find myself torn between the incredibly low paying Ok wages and my desire to make a positive impact in the lives of children. I was thinking maybe a Speech Therapist might be the way to go. I need any information regarding education requirements, certifications, salary & benefits. Thanks!!!
