The program is designed to provide students with a variety of academic coursework and clinical practicum experiences, according to the standards set forth by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), to prepare them, from a family-centered perspective, for professional careers as speech-language pathologists, serving children and adults who have communication disorders.
I have experienced many benefits as a result of the five-year program. However, one of the greatest benefits is the strong sense of community. Because we aren't competing for limited spaces in graduate programs, the students in the program are encouraging and eager to help each other. The five-year program fosters a strong support system among its students.
