  1. I understand that it would be wonderful for a person requiring services from an SLP have expertise in a particular area, however those of us working in a public school are not able to refer to another therapist. Whatever deficits a child has, we are expected to treat. Not every deficit requires an extremely experienced SLP, but what is more important is that they are a good SLP who will use all resources available to provide appropriate therapy.

    • Hi Lisa, you make an excellent point and I agree with you. Despite experience levels, we always have to make sure we are doing our best for the clients we serve. Passion, compassion, and the ability to find information is very important.
