Licensed speech-language pathology assistants earn considerably more than registered speech-language pathology “aides,” which are the only paraprofessional positions available for those with associate’s or bachelor’s degrees in communication disorders and sciences/speech-language pathology who have not yet obtained – or do not wish to pursue – a master’s degree.
The Speech-Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA) Fieldwork Experience program is offered at the California State University Northridge. The CSUN SLPA advanced professional development certificate program is for those who wish to become licensed Speech-Language Pathology Assistants (SLPAs), regardless of whether they intend to pursue a master’s degree.
The CSUN Certificate in SLPA Fieldwork Experience is comprised of two required courses:
Students will complete no less than 100 hours of face-to-face clinical fieldwork plus no less than 10 hours of additional clinical support/administrative work included in the tasks necessary to effectively work as a licensed Speech Language-Pathology Assistant (SLPA), including clinical documentation, staffing time (i.e. attending IEP meetings, team conferences, staff meetings), lesson planning, and therapy preparation under the supervision of the licensed SLP supervisor.
