Should I consider a career in Speech Language Pathology?

Trying to decide if Speech Language Pathology is a career I should consider at 39, and would love to hear from SLPs who work in a school setting. I want to engage my creativity, work with kids on a smaller scale than a whole classroom, have a good work/life balance, and do work that feels like it MEANS something. Am I barking up the right tree? [more inside]

How to talk good on the radio?–Speech exercises for average voices?

Speech therapists/radio presenters: I may have to do some podcast-type stuff for work. I don't have a great radio voice. It's thin and slightly regionally accented, and I talk quickly, mumble and (soberly) slur words a bunch. With attention and concentration I can correct these faults up to "average" level; but I'd like to be good at radio/podcast presentation. What further steps should I take? [more inside]

I'm interested in going to graduate school to pursue a degree in speech language pathology.

Hearing loss makes me talk too quietly (I think) - ideas?

The common sterotype of people with hearing loss is that they SPEAK TOO LOUDLY!!! in order to hear their own voices; for me, though, the problem is starting conversations just a bit too quietly to be easily understood. How can I fix this? [more inside]

Recommend a Skype camera/speaker setup for a remote speech therapist

We live in South America and our son is in need of a native English speaker to work with him on pronunciation. There is no one here who can help, but as luck would have it, we have a relative in the states who is a licensed speech therapist who can help over Skype. We're looking for camera and speaker suggestions for both sides - assuming we have solved the bandwidth issue, is there a camera for a PC that would be ideal for this? Are there other speech professionals who have done this before?

How can I make myself pronounce 'th' sounds correctly?

I can't pronounce 'th' sounds in normal speech. That is, I pronounce 'the' as 'vuh' and 'three' as 'free' (rather than putting my tongue against my teeth as apparently other people do). I'm very self-conscious now I'm aware of it and worry it will give people a poor impression of me - "vey might fink I'm fick". Has anyone else had this problem? How can I fix it? [more inside]
