Speech Language Pathologist Jobs with TherapyTravelers

Speech-language pathologists work with people of all ages from children to adults. We know this is one of the most rewarding careers out there. 

The 2019 median pay for Speech language pathologist jobs was $79,120 per year or $38.04 per hour, a lot higher than the country’s average pay making it one of the most lucrative professions out there.

The typical entry-level education, however, is higher for this field. You will need a master’s degree to find a good job and make a decent amount of money working as an slp. However, on our platform, you will find a variety of positions including jobs that do not require a master’s degree. 

Work experience in a similar field is not required to get started but internship or residency programs are often mandatory. Most states require SLPs to have a valid license. However, requirements differ from state to state and you might be able to find jobs that do not require a license.

It is quite easy to get a job as an SLP due to the huge demand. There were 153,700 positions in 2018. The employment change rate for 2018 to 2028 is expected to be 41,900. The job outlook is very positive as well – 27%.

Right now there are several speech language pathologist jobs and the numbers are encouraging.  About 7.7% of children aged 3-17 in the US have had voice, language, swallowing, or speech-related disorder in the last year. SLPs need a lot of patience to be able to deal with such children.

Some of these disorders last for a very short time period but some can take months and years to deal with.

As a speech-language pathologist, you will be assessing, treating, and helping children overcome swallowing and communication issues including speed and language disorders. SLPs commonly work in schools but you may also find vacancies in hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

In school settings, SLPs are tasked with aiding in foundational development that has a profound and landing impact on their student’s lives. Here are a few tasks a speech-language pathologist is expected to perform at work:

  • Monitor progress and make changes to treatments accordingly
  • Work with others to develop reliable plans to solve problems such as speech language disorder and hearing loss
  • Evaluate speech, language, or hearing test results
  • Work individually or in teams to develop group or individual programs to deal with speech-language issues
  • Work with clients as a language pathology expert and discuss techniques for effective communication

 

 

More on SLP Jobs

 

SLP jobs are competitive but also very much in demand. Speech-language pathology jobs require patience and compassion. In fact, there appears to be a shortage of qualified applicants, especially in rural regions.

This is due to a variety of reasons including a lack of good institutions. We treasure those that have chosen this profession and TherapyTravelers will work to get you placed in a position that values all that you have to offer.

It is important to look in the right place for the right job. Remember that salaries and benefits differ from state to state. Connecticut and California are the best for SLPs as the average salary in these states are above $92,000. On the other hand, Mississippi and Pennsylvania, and West Virginia are among the worst states for language pathologist jobs as the salary here is lower than $59,000.
