What's it like to be a speech language pathologist?
January 8, 2014 8:42 PM Subscribe
I'm interested in going to graduate school to pursue a degree in speech language pathology. I've read a lot about the career online, but I'm interested to learn more about the daily realities for speech language pathologists (a.k.a. speech therapists) and their journeys building a career in the field. So: What's it like to be (and become) a speech language pathologist?

Bonus points if the answer delves into any of the following: degrees and types of disability in clients, day to day lifestyle, job prospects, variations between work settings, and whether most jobs are limited to nursing homes and helping people with swallowing issues (which I'm currently not very excited about).
