Massachusetts State Licensure Information & Resources
Individuals who wish to take on school SLP jobs will need to first obtain a state-approved license. Speech language pathologists, or SLPs, will need to earn their master's or doctoral degree or have a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. The Department of Education for the state will issue a certificate allowing the individual to work in schools throughout the state.
Because the need for SLPs in the state of Massachusetts is so high, Advanced Travel Therapy will reimburse the cost of your state licensure fees. We encourage you to explore all that this community right along the Atlantic Ocean has to offer to you.
School SLP jobs will entail a wide range of activities. Most individuals who work in this position will work one-on-one with students who need help and guidance. Job duties may include:
- Accessing students to determine their current language or speed levels.
- Evaluating any speech or language concerns present.
- Creating a care plan for each student in need taking into consideration the student's individual physical, emotional, psychological, and mental needs within that plan.
- Working to meet all school-specific goals and needs.
- Working closely with the student, but also parents, teachers, and other school professionals to ensure the student is given the care he or she needs.
- Attending meetings with other professionals or parents as necessary.
