Speech Therapy Job Responsibilities
Speech-language pathologists work to prevent, identify, and overcome various speech, language, communication, and swallowing disorders or challenges.
- Certified speech-language pathologists may be required to hold an American Heart Association BLS depending on their state of practice and healthcare employer.
- Many certified SLPs choose to specialize informally, meaning that they focus on one component of speech, language, or swallowing, on a specific age group, or on a specific patient group. For example, an SLP may mainly assist individuals with speech disfluency, work exclusively with geriatric patients, or focus on post-surgical patients.
- Some speech-language pathologists, however, choose to pursue formal specialization through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA).
- An SLP may only apply for specialization after obtaining his or her national certification, the Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP), and meeting the requisite experience. At this point they can apply to become a Board Certified Specialist (BCS) in one of the following areas:
- American Board of Child Language and Language Disorders American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders
- American Board of Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders
- American Audiology Board of Intraoperative Monitoring
