Working in Multiple Settings as an SLP

Yes, you CAN work in multiple settings as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP).

In fact, it’s a big part of why I chose this field. I knew I wanted to be in a helping profession. I knew I wanted a job that would challenge me and allow me to grow each and every day.

I also knew that I didn’t want to sit behind a desk all day every day doing the same thing over and over again. Ironically, I do sit behind my desk often as I run 3 businesses, but I definitely don’t do the same thing all day every day!

I was also worried about burnout and liked the idea of being able to switch settings down the line if I ever got bored or burnt out in a specific setting.

Now as a practicing SLP, I see both children and adults. I see adults in my hospital and home health PRN jobs. I see children and teens in my private practice.

My areas of interest are all related to neuro diagnoses that impact cognitive-communication and language skills, and as SLPs we help people with neuro diagnoses across the lifespan.

I do a LOT of continuing education each year, which is important when you work with a variety of populations, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My favorite continuing education platforms and podcasts include:

*Note: I am not affiliated with any of the above platforms/podcasts - I just love them!

I’m a lifelong learner, and I love that this field allows me to explore my interests in a variety of different areas.

Why did you choose this field?
