High school students learn about careers in speech-language pathology|
The four-day, three night residential academic camp allows students to become familiar with the many career options in the growing field of speech-language pathology. Participants toured the department’s state-of-the-art academic facilities at John J. Passan Hall, learned about the field from guest lecturers and toured a local health care facility to learn about the various settings in which speech-language pathologists are employed and the populations they serve.
Students who have participated in past camps have found it to be both informative and challenging, according to exit surveys. Speech-language pathologists are employed in schools, hospitals, nursing care facilities, home health care settings, outpatient care centers, day care centers for children and institutions of higher education.
